Biology Degree Hons

During Stage 3, you can study this optional module in biodiversity and biodiversity management. You’ll investigate aspects that are impacting the Earth; including climate change, tropical deforestation and invasive species. Our biology degree covers all the major biological concepts, including evolution and genetics. You’ll also gain valuable hands-on experience in laboratories and learn important field techniques. This module will introduce the students to the taxonomy and diversity of eukaryotic organisms in the various domains of the tree of life. Students will become familiarised with the various theories on the evolution and adaptations of both unicellular and multicellular eukaryotes.

Each year you will take modules worth a total of 120 credits, with most individual modules worth 15 credits.

Such as microbial resistance, climate change, safe and sustainable food production and the conservation of endangered species. The module will develop understanding and analytical skills in virology, based around interactive seminars wherein students will analyse, present, and discuss the relevant research literature. The students will gain experience in scientific design, literature analysis, scientific communication, and the analysis of experimental data. The module deals with the molecular mechanisms underlying the ecological, medical, scientific and commercial importance of microorganisms . This involves descriptions of how microbial genetic information is stored in DNA, how that information is decoded by the cell and how this flow of information is controlled in response to changes in environment. The Module also discusses microbial interaction with humans and the environment.
