Biologie, M.Sc.

Description

The Master's degree programme in Biology offers the opportunity to learn advanced techniques and their use in research, technical implementation and application. The modular structure of this degree programme allows to choose one the three focal areas:

  • Molecular Biomedicine / Genombiology
  • Molecular Biology/Synthetic Biology
  • Ecology

Students who don't want to focus on one subject, but want to structure their studies freely, can do this in the “area without focus”.
