About The School

The research at the School of Zoology is highly diverse and encompasses a broad spectrum of fields and subjects, from the molecular level to the macro-ecology level. The fields include ecology, nature conservation, marine biology, environmental physiology, neurobiology, animal behavior (ethology), phylogenetic, taxonomy, and evolution. The School also conducts research in the Zoological Gardens and the Steinhardt Museum of Natural History, both of which belong to the School and feature rare and unique collections that facilitate innovative research.


Recommended tracks: The research topics covered at the School are suitable for studies in a variety of tracks. While the majority of our graduate students opt for the Zoology track, or the Ecology and Environmental Science track, it is also possible to take other study tracks such as Genetics, Neurobiology, and Biotechnology. All students at the School, regardless of which track they have chosen, are obliged to participate in two of the Zoology track courses (Research Skills, and Biostatistics). Applicants to the School of Zoology should include form # 26 in their registration material.
