Learn from the best
Learn first-hand from our highly-qualified and approachable biological sciences staff from genetics, microbiology, cell biology, zoology, plant biology and ecology.
What is it Like?
From genes to entire ecosystems, the study of biological sciences covers the whole spectrum of life. You’ll gain an understanding of a broad range of life science topics. This includes the molecules organisms are built from, the form and function of molecules, the conservation of plant and animal species and ultimately the management of ecosystems.
Learn from the experts
When you study the Bachelor of Science (Biological Sciences) at Massey, you’ll learn first-hand from our world-renowned biological sciences staff. They are cell biologists, geneticists, microbiologists, zoologists and ecologists, researching many areas of biology. These include applied sciences in agriculture and animal science, to the latest theories about the origins of life and the processes of molecular evolution. This means a major in biological science at Massey will give you an in-depth and comprehensive understanding pf a large number of biological disciplines - and beyond. That is a great advantage when you are looking for a job.
Have an impact on the world
Biological sciences has an impact on all sorts of areas of global significance, such as :
Caters to diverse interests
You can choose from our extensive range of disciplines to combine all your varied interests in ecology, zoology, environmental science, marine ecology, microbiology and more into one overarching major. Some of the topics to be taught in biological sciences include:
Your biological sciences major will help you find a career in a wide variety of situations and industries. Employers such as regional and district councils are always looking for people with a broad-based degree with a specialisation, with environmental science and ecology being two good examples.
Processing industries associated with primary production (such as dairy companies) employ similarly broad-based graduates with a specialisation in the molecular aspects of biological science. Crown Research Institutes and universities also seek out programme graduates at the technical level.
In both areas, if you continue to postgraduate study you could move on to a career as a professional scientist. A biological sciences major is also very appropriate for a career as a secondary teacher.
Students must have successful completion of a qualification equivalent to the New Zealand Year 13 - NCEA Level 3 University Entrance.
A background in biology at NCEA Level 3 (or equivalent) is very useful and other Science subjects (chemistry, and statistics in particular) are helpful. Chemistry is strongly recommended if you want to emphasise molecular aspects of this major.
