Ecology is the study of how organisms behave, evolve, and interact with their physical and biological environments. It seeks to provide the basis for understanding life’s diversity, abundance, and distribution of organisms. As an Ecology student, you will study the richness of the biosphere and how it is affected by human activities like climate change, pollution and the destruction of natural ecosystems.
This single honours programme is recognised as one of the finest and most comprehensive in the country, incorporating the teaching expertise of the School of Biological Sciences and the School of Environmental Sciences. The School of Biological Sciences brings together one of the largest teams of ecologists and evolutionary biologists in the UK in the Centre for Ecology, Evolution and Conservation.
Academics from the Schools of Biological Sciences, Environmental Sciences and International Development teach the core modules of our ecology programmes, with additional tuition carried out by scientists from the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research.
