It is an exciting time to study Biology, from the ability to read and change DNA sequences to advances in our understanding of health and environmental issues that affect biodiversity, food production and disease. A new era has arrived in which we have the opportunity, through understanding and applying biological knowledge, to find pioneering ways to address individual, regional and global issues that affect our changing world. This biology course has been developed utilizing the internationally recognised expertise and facilities of the University of Hertfordshire, Oaklands College, Rothamsted Research and The Royal Veterinary College. It is aimed at students who wish to enhance their understanding of plant and animal science, with particular regard to food production and security, ecology, environmental issues and sustainability, both in the business world and in the management of animals, plants and land.
Our graduates from the Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences are highly sought after by employers due to the reputation of our teaching, the vocational element to our degrees and the fact that many of our students already have a year’s work experience when they graduate which they gain in the sandwich year.
Applied Plant and Animal Biology graduates would be employable in biotechnology, farming, food and pharmaceutical industries; environmental agencies, regulatory bodies and government, as well as in industrial, academic and charity funded scientific research.
