An MSc degree contains a smaller research component alongside taught modules, and is suitable for students interested in a broader range of careers.

MRes in Evolutionary Biology

This MRes is based around an in-depth research project in evolutionary biology. The research-focused degree examines evolutionary biology; from the evolution of sociality, symbioses and sexual conflict, through to the evolution of genes and genomes. The course will place you in a strong position to move on to a PhD in evolutionary biology or a research career in associated areas.
