What is the Master’s Degree of Biology about?

The Master's degree program offers a comprehensive exploration of biology, covering both the fundamental scientific principles and experimental methodologies essential for biological research. Through the utilization of model systems spanning plants, animals, and microorganisms, students gain a robust understanding of diverse biological realms, facilitating nuanced insights into current research domains.

Students engage in research projects within institute working groups, where they apply learned methods and concepts to real-world scientific inquiries. The program fosters interdisciplinary connections, allowing for collaborative ventures across various fields of study (e.g. chemistry, medicine, pharmacy) within the project domain.

Furthermore, students have the opportunity to tailor their education through elective modules, enabling specialization within the following fields:

  • Biodiversity, Evolution and Ecology
  • Genetics and Genomics
  • Microbiology
  • Molecular and Cellular Biology
  • Molecular Plant Sciences
  • Neurobiology and Behavior
  • Biology
