Our BSc Biology with Science and Society course will give you the opportunity to study both the biological sciences and their contemporary social context, combining science, the humanities and social sciences in a single course.
You will explore the changing social, ethical and political dimension of the biological sciences while also developing research, writing and communication skills.
You will learn from staff at our world-renowned Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine , whose specialisms range from the critical history and social implications of genetics to evolutionary theory, biomedical sciences and modern medical practice.
The course features science media projects where you produce a portfolio of communication materials that could include a scientific article or a podcast. There are also science communication placements through our industrial/professional experience option , where you could spend a year working in an organisation that communicates science, such as a medical writing company or a museum.
These and other elements of our course will help you to graduate with the skills and knowledge you need for non-laboratory-based science careers such as management, museum work, science communication or science policy work.
Undertake an exciting range of final-year projects including science media, education and history of science technology and medicine.
**Spend a year in the workplace**
You can extend your degree by a year to gain industrial/professional experience .
**Foundation year available**
You can prepare for the full degree course if you do not have the appropriate qualifications for direct entry by undertaking our foundation course first.
**Flexibility to transfer between courses**
You can transfer between most of our biological sciences degree courses at the end of your first year or, in some cases, later.
