Zoology is an Exciting Field of Study!

Zoology makes a huge impact on our world through the scientific study of the evolution, anatomy, physiology, behavior, habitats and health of animals and humans. It includes varied approaches such as electron microscopy, molecular genetics, and field ecology. 

By studying animals we develop a better understanding of how we, ourselves, function and interact with the world around us. The search for answers to our questions puts us in the incredible position of being able to affect change, empower better choices, and develop solutions for a stronger, healthier world.

You will like Zoology if...

♦ You often wonder how or why our bodies work the way they do.
♦ You have a strong desire to understand human or animal interactions with their environments.
♦Working in a DNA lab or a human anatomy teaching lab sounds intriguing.
♦ You enjoy learning about cell biology, physiology and ecology.
♦ You want to pursue medical school, dental school or another pre-medical professional program.


See yourself here...

Can you picture putting your curiosity and creativity to work so that you can help the world solve current problems, and plan better futures?

A Zoology degree can help you make that happen. 

Animals on the verge of extinction, people in need of medical care; from seemingly small, to the very large, there are many careers that allow you to use what you will learn in zoology to make a difference in this world.
