Zoology

An MSc, or Master of Science, is an academic distinction bestowed upon those who effectively complete a predetermined set of coursework in what is often a science-based discipline. The MSc often enhances career opportunities as well as earning potential.

An MSc in Zoology/Animal Sciences provides you with the chance to study animals and their habitats. With an MSc in Zoology/Animal Sciences, you will become an expert on habitats as diverse as deserts, wetlands, high altitude fauna, and rainforests.

There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.

Graduate will be able independently to solve research problems in biology and biology applications. He or she will have knowledge and experience in research methods of living systems at the different organization levels (molecule, cell, organism, population, and ecosystem).

Graduates will be knowledgeable in the basic biological disciplines (genetics, molecular biology, plant and animal physiology, cytology, immunology, microbiology, etiology, botany, zoology, human biology, ecology etc.). In addition, they will have knowledge in several chemistry disciplines and multidisciplinary sciences such as biophysics, biochemistry and bioinformatics. Further they will possess deep theoretical knowledge in wide range of physiology and zoology disciplines. Graduates will master methodology and experimental practices in its major, which he or she can apply in either future employment or in the 3rd degree of higher education, i.e. Ph.D. programme. Graduates will be able to participate in teaching of biology disciplines at the higher education level. ... [-]


MSc in Applied Ethology and Animal Biology

Linköping University
Campus Full time 2 years September 2018 Sweden Linköping

This programme deals with animal behaviour and biology from an applied perspective, including problems associated with keeping animals in captivity. The aim is to provide students with a solid understanding of theory and methods of applied ethology.

Students gain a good working knowledge of the programme’s central issues, such as the biology of stress and its role in animal welfare, the effects of domestication on animal behaviour, the physiology of behaviour, and conservation biology. The programme is taught in collaboration with Kolmården Wildlife Park, one of the largest and most highly renowned zoos in Sweden. Several teaching sessions are held at the zoo where students acquire first-hand knowledge from experienced zoologists.... [-]


MSc Zoology

University of Vienna
Campus Full time 2 years October 2018 Austria Vienna

The master’s programme zoology aims at students interested in modern research regarding animal life forms. It conveys an organism-oriented approach as well as the practical application of innovative research methods for analysing the behaviour, body structure, function, development and evolution of animal life forms.

The master’s programme zoology aims at students interested in modern research regarding animal life forms. It conveys an organism-oriented approach as well as the practical application of innovative research methods for analysing the behaviour, body structure, function, development and evolution of animal life forms.

The master’s programme Zoology was introduced in winter semester 2007. The main admission requirement is the completion of a bachelor’s degree or equivalent degree in a closely related discipline at a university or institution of postsecondary education in Austria or abroad.

Based on two compulsory modules, the elective modules allow a specialisation in various directions and methods of zoological research. One main aspect of the programme is the practical scientific training in special courses, seminars and field trips, all of which prepare the student for writing the master's thesis. Scientific methods and techniques (such as confocal microscopy, 3D reconstruction, electron microscopy, and methods used molecular biology), which are the core competencies for professional work inside and outside the university sector, are conveyed in small groups of students....
