Course description

Nature is changing and we as people still do not understand all biological interactions, but continue looking for solutions. With a Master of Biology you can help gather more knowledge about mother nature’s marvels.

This Masters programme includes various specialisations, among these are: cell and microbiology, ecology and human and marine biology. The diverse content ranges from genetics, cell research, bacteriology, histology, environmental analysis to behavioural biology. Some courses are interdisciplinary in their composition, such as chemical biology, engineering biology, or life sciences.

A Master of Biology usually is an in-depth study, which builds on knowledge gained in a previous Bachelors or equivalent degree in Biology. More information can be found on the websites of the universities offering an MSc in Biology.
