The Zoology track is intended for students with a background in biology. It provides students with training in integrative zoology, broad and in-depth knowledge on all major animal groups, and experience in multiple approaches and methods applied in zoological research.
About the Program
Zoological research deals with the organism and its interactions with the environment. This is a multidisciplinary research that combines traditional methods, such as field observations and microscopy, with cutting-edge methods in molecular biology, movement ecology and eco-physiology. Students interact with leading scientists in the field of zoology in Israel and abroad, and conduct research on exciting organisms in unique habitats. Zoological research deals with fundamental and timely topics in biology, such as global warming, species extinction and formation, and invasive species.
Students in the zoology track acquire broad knowledge in integrative zoology and first-hand acquaintance with animals in their natural habitats, in the zoological garden and in the lab, supervised by leading zoologists who are experts in their respective fields. The course program ensures comprehensive knowledge of all major animal groups and experience in a wide range of research and analytical methods.
