Centre of Excellence - Herpetology Diploma Course

What Will You Learn?

Become an expert in all things scaly. A fascinating branch of zoology, herpetology is the study of reptiles and amphibians or, more specifically, cold-blooded tetrapods. You’ll get to know the ins and outs of reptiles, such as tortoises, terrapins, snakes and lizards, and amphibians, such as toads, salamanders, frogs and newts.

The Herpetology Diploma Course explains how amphibians and reptiles are classified, including an exploration of the various sub-orders and families used, and how they evolved to be the creatures we know them as today.

You’ll study many aspects of their anatomy and physiology – their development, colouration, skin, scales, glands, thermoregulation, respiration, energetics, water balance, kidney function, reproduction and more.

You’ll also learn about their communication methods, mating and social behaviours, their diets, how they hunt and ingest their prey, and how they defend themselves and escape from predators.

  • Become familiar with the classification of amphibians and reptiles
  • Understand how amphibians and reptiles have evolved
  • Have a good knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of amphibians and reptiles
  • Learn about the communication methods and social behaviours used by cold-blooded tetrapods
