The BSc Plant Science course examines the growth, development and productivity of plants. To understand and exploit these processes, students will learn how to apply concepts from a wide range of biological areas to plant science, including genetics, molecular biology, biochemistry and cell biology. These include the opportunity to go on a field course on the Mediterranean island of Mallorca in the Easter vacation of their first year, when the orchids are in bloom. A tropical or UK-based field course builds on this in their second year. This course is modular. Students will study compulsory course units and choose some optional units. Most units are assigned 10 credits and you will take 120 credits each year. This course is suitable for those interested in undertaking research related to areas such as food security and biofuel development. Around one-third of graduates work in scientific research and development, which may require significant postgraduate study, usually a PhD. This course is also ideal for those wanting to pursue careers in teaching or communicating science, as well as careers unrelated to biological sciences including management, finance, marketing and the civil service.
