The Zoology major focuses on the diversity, organismal biology, ecology and evolution of animals. Many Zoology majors are interested in animal care and husbandry, as well as careers in field work, informal education, and agency work and museum curation. Elective courses in organismal biology, ecology and evolutionary biology and policy and management and can be used to pursue a variety of professional interests. The Zoology major does not provide the proper training for veterinary medicine, and interested students should instead look at the Biology major. The Zoology major offers scientific training in the diversity, organismal biology, ecology, and evolution of animals. The major core provides a solid foundation in the biological sciences while electives allow students to cater course work to meet specific interests in animal biology. Zoology majors enter such varied fields as animal care and husbandry, curatorial and museum management, laboratory animal research, field biology and conservation, and environmental management and policy. The Zoology major is not suitable for pre-veterinary medicine students as it does not include the required prerequisite course work (see the option in Pre-Veterinary Medicine in the Biology major). Students in the Zoology major must complete BI 211 or 211H, BI 212 or 212H and BI 213 or 213H with a C- or better to continue on to upper division Biology (BI) and Zoology (Z) course work. Students majoring in Biology, Bio Health Sciences, Fisheries and Wildlife Sciences or Zoology cannot seek a dual or double major in any combination of these four majors. Zoology majors cannot seek the Biology minor.
