The Bachelor of Science Honours (BScHons) is designed to provide you with skills you will need to develop a successful career as a practising natural scientist employed as a consultant, manager or researcher.
In our Department, we offer three specialisations in the BScHons: Zoology, Entomology, and Wildlife Management. The Honours course in each specialisation involves the completion of a self-contained research project complemented by a range of coursework modules. The results of the research project are presented as a written thesis, as well as reported to the Department at its Annual General Meeting as a poster and oral presentation.
The BScHons course is presented on a full-time basis within a single academic year. The course comprises a total of six modules. For BScHons in Zoology, three modules (BME 780, ZEN 701, ZEN 713) are compulsory and an additional three choice modules are selected. For BScHons in Entomology, the same three modules are compulsory and three choice modules must be selected, but at least one choice module must be entomological in nature (either ZEN 707 or 782). Compulsory and choice modules are listed below. Choice modules are only offered if enough students register for them.
