The Master of Science in Zoology at University of Johannesburg consists of three programmes i.e.:
- Aquatic Health
- Biodiversity and Conservation
Alternatively, a Tutored Master’s degree depending on the nature of the topic, consists of three examination papers (lectured component) that makes up 50% of the final mark and a research project in the form of a minor dissertation (making up the remaining 50% of the credits for the degree).
To pass, a student must obtain at least 50% for each of the examination papers as well as the research project, based on a minor dissertation. The research-based minor dissertation makes up the remaining 50% of the final mark (i.e. a weight of 50% of the total course) and has to be passed (i.e. a mark of 50% or more) for the student to pass the degree.
In the case of part-time students, the examination may be written in two parts: two papers in the first part and a paper and minor dissertation in the final part. The two parts must be passed within the course of one academic year. Candidates lacking adequate statistical awareness are required to complete a statistics awareness course.
