This four-year version of the BSc Animal Behaviour degree includes a year spent undertaking a professional placement between the second and final years. You will spend this third year working in an appropriate organisation and you will apply the skills learnt during the first and second years, improve personal and transferable skills, make new contacts and enhance employability.Animal behaviour aims to understand natural behaviour, how behaviour varies among individuals, species and species groups, how current and past environments and ecology influence behaviour and the underlying gene-environment interactions. The programme highlights the value of studying animals in their natural habitats, utilising the expertise of staff members who run long-term studies of iconic species in the wild. This approach is underpinned by field courses in the second and third years.Throughout the programme an interdisciplinary approach is encouraged and you will be exposed to a wide range of theoretical and practical techniques used to study animal behaviour. We will provide you with the skills, concepts and experience to understand all aspects of animal behaviour. It covers the evolution and adaptive function of behaviour in the wild, its physiological and neuronal control, and how animals develop socially and cognitively through experience. Why study Animal Behaviour at the University of Exeter?Led by some of the UKs foremost biologists working in evolution, conservation and ecologyVariety of field work opportunities in the UK and overseasClose links with a wide range of conservation organisationsState-of-the-art facilitiesGraduate with outstanding employment prospects
