The unique nature of our School of Zoology lies in the exceptional integration of laboratory research with the facilities in our Zoological Garden and The Steinhardt Museum of Natural History on the campus. We focus on the whole organism, from the molecular level to the macro-ecology level. The School excels in integrating field research throughout the country, and elsewhere in the world, with the use of the most up-to-date laboratory methods.
Research at the School of Zoology is varied and spreads over a broad range of fields: ecology, nature conservation, marine biology, environmental physiology, neurobiology, animal behaviour (ethology), phylogeny, faunistics and evolution. Research at the School is also carried out in both our Zoological Research Garden and the Steinhardt Museum of Natural History (under the auspices of the School), which are home to rare collections of animals, enabling innovative research.
The recommended study tracks: the research subjects at the School are matched to the different study tracks. The majority of the School’s students take either the Zoology track or the Ecology and Environmental Quality track. However, it is also possible to take a different track, such as genetics, neurobiology and biotechnology.
