Our genetics degree will help you understand the building blocks of life, whilst preparing you for a career in
• Forensic science
• Evolution or medicine.
As a result of the sequencing of the entire genome of many species, genetics is rapidly growing in importance. The same basic genetic principles apply to humans, animals, plants, and microorganisms such as bacteria. This gives flexibility to genetics graduates in future employment. Areas where genetics is important include the development of pharmaceuticals, forensic science, the treatment of diseases, the study of evolution, and the conservation of biodiversity.
