Zoology » Overview

If you are concerned for the rising number of endangered species in the world, a degree in Zoology can help you understand the function of animals in the ecosystem and how humans have impacted their habitats.

Zoology is the study of animals, their behaviour, physiology and evolution, as well as their interactions with each other and their environment. Animals play a vital part in the ecosystem and if we had not learnt to domesticate many species, we would not be able to function as a modern society.

You will not only learn about animal functioning but also delve into a broad range of related subjects such as ecology, diversity and conservation. With many animals being driven from their habitats due to deforestation and the destruction of other habitats, there is no better time to jump on board to increase awareness of the importance of animal habitat rehabilitation.

Zoology in New Zealand is taught by world-class experts who have been involved in research and development here and overseas. This gives you up to date, practical, information on the current state of Zoology. Studying Zoology opens doors to careers worldwide, whether it’s helping the kiwi here, or the last remaining Sumatran tigers in Indonesia.
