About

This Ecology and Conservation Biology course at University of Sheffield is designed to give you the best start for a career in industrial or academic research. You’ll explore how humans, animals and plants interact with each other and their environment, and how this determines their abundance, distribution and the biodiversity we see on the planet. 

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

You'll learn about human impacts on ecological interactions, the climate crisis, biodiversity and sustainability, as well as what we can do to manage natural resources in the face of changing environments. 

The first three years of your Ecology and Conservation Biology course from University of Sheffield have the same structure as the BSc, with the fourth year devoted to a major research project in the field or in the lab, working alongside our world-leading academics.

Key Features 

  • Alongside your specialist ecology and conservation modules, from your first year you’ll have the flexibility to study topics across the breadth of biology to complement your knowledge. 
  • Topics range from plant science, biotechnology and zoology, to neuroscience, genetics and physiology. This flexibility allows you to study ecology and conservation in greater depth, keep your interests broad or even switch to another degree programme within the biosciences.
