Masters African Zoology Field Course (837C1)
15 credits, Level 7 (Masters)
The rich biological diversity of southern Africa, including ecologically dominant megafauna, and the conservation challenges this presents, makes the region an exceptional place to learn about zoology.
This field course will be based at research sites in southern Africa that will provide you with the opportunity to study terrestrial African animals, including some of the charismatic megafauna.
Following an introduction to the sites, you'll carry out a fieldwork research project to investigate the behaviour, ecology or conservation of African animals.
