A specialisation in Zoology will provide the springboard for students entering careers in many areas of animal biology, from conservation and wildlife management to the biotech, biomedical and bioinformatics industries. Graduates will be prepared for these pathways by developing skills in appropriate zoological concepts, data collection and analysis, and critical evaluation of empirical arguments. This specialisation will provide an understanding of the complexities of animal systems by integrating knowledge from the biology of cells to the behaviour of whole organisms.
Intended learning outcomes
Upon completion of this specialisation, students should be able to:
- Identify the complexities of animal systems by integrating knowledge from the biology of cells to the behaviour of whole organisms;
- Analyse animal diversity within a global and Australian context;
- Critically evaluate empirical arguments;
- Design and conduct experiments with animals;
- Apply statistical methods in the analysis and interpretation of data;
- Demonstrate effective written and oral communication skills in presenting the outcomes of experimental research.
