The scope of Biological Sciences is extensive. It covers the structure and function of all living organisms, their relationships and evolutionary origins. It also looks at their interactions, and the physical and chemical worlds around them.

The biological sciences have never been more important for preserving New Zealand’s economic prosperity and the natural biodiversity of our islands in the face of global threats such as climate change and population growth.

Discovery in the biosciences has advanced at breathtaking speed. This has led to a new generation of therapies in health and medicine, sustainable consumer-focused products in agbiotech industries, and novel strategies for the protection of fragile ecosystems.

We teach courses that span the spectrum of biology from atoms and molecules to ecosystems, with each of these areas supported by active research groups and well equipped facilities:

  • Biomedicine
  • Biotechnology
  • Ecology
  • Evolutionary biology
  • Genetics
  • Marine, freshwater and animal biology
  • Microbiology
  • Molecular biology
  • Plant sciences

Further study options

  • Master of Science
  • Master of Speech Language Therapy Practice
  • Master of Bioscience Enterprise
  • Doctor of Philosophy
  • Doctor of Clinical Psychology
