Zoology

Why study honours in zoology?

An Honours degree in Zoology can lead to many exciting careers. Our graduates work in wildlife reserves, museums, zoos, government departments and many different industries.

The Department of Zoology prides itself on offering Honours research projects that span the whole of zoological science, from ecology to animal physiology. Students develop unique skills in a research area of their choice, as well as a range of valuable generic skills that are highly sought after by employers.

There are a range of non-assessed and assessed tasks each student must fulfil over the course of the Honours year. The assessment tasks are supported with appropriate seminars to ensure students will have the required knowledge to be able to successfully complete them.

More information about Zoology Honours projects at La Trobe can be found on the applying for research page.
