Description

This is a single Honours programme which is recognised as one of the finest and most comprehensive in the country. It is the fruit of a unique collaboration between the School of Biological Sciences and the School of Environmental Sciences at UEA, Norwich, providing unrivalled opportunities for studying population biology, conservation and related topics ranging from the molecular genetics of populations, plant science and animal behaviour, to environmental management and environmental aspects of economics and politics.

The course also benefits greatly from specialist teaching by the staff of two affiliated Institutes, the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Lowestoft) and the British Trust for Ornithology (Thetford), among other local organisations. Field courses are an important element of the teaching.
