MBIOL Integrated Masters in Biology/BSc Biology

Sona lab 750A biology graduate's career can lie within a broad range of areas, in the agriculture, food, pharmaceutical, health, biotechnology, biomedical and ecology sectors. Increasingly, employment opportunities are becoming more global through EU organisations and in the international biological and ecological science sectors. A key element of our programme is development of the qualities and knowledge profile required to fit the needs of biology-related industries and employers.

The MBIOL programme is jointly run by scientists from the Department of Life and Sports Science and the Natural Resources Institute. These departments have a wide range of sophisticated laboratories, which are well equipped to support delivery of biology courses to master's level. Staff members delivering the programme are internationally recognised in their fields, bringing the experience of their innovative research and consultancy work.

Bee Sarah Arnold 750The aims of the programme are to:

  • Provide a comprehensive multidisciplinary understanding of biology, from the molecular to the global level
  • Develop the learning, analytical, critical and presentational skills to support lifetime learning and career development
  • Investigate, document and analyse living systems and understand underlying philosophical, ethical and scientific paradigms relevant to biology
  • Provide the understanding, knowledge portfolio and skills needed to thrive in industry, academia or public sector locally and globally

Prepare graduates for employment opportunities in the biotechnology, biomedical science, environmental consultancy, agribusiness and sustainable development sectors.
