What Will You Study
This degree offers you a diverse choice of modules in genetics, biomedicine, microbiology, ecology, physiology and conservation. You start your Biological Sciences degree studying modules such as Cell Structure and Function and Evolutionary Biology. The flexible nature of the course enables you to transfer to one of our more specialised degree programmes after your first year.
In your second year, you can take modules including Medical Microbiology and Populations to Ecosystems. If you take our Study Abroad variant, you will spend the year studying at a partner university in the USA, Canada or Australasia. In your final year we offer you courses including Biology of Ageing and Global Change Biology.
Our links with external research institutions, such as hospitals and industrial laboratories, add even greater texture to your experience.
At Lancaster we have both Biology and Biological Science undergraduate programmes. Take a look at the factsheet to find out about the differences between these two degree schemes.
