Bachelor of Science

Biologie, B.Sc.


Modern Biosciences are characterised by tremendous technical dynamics and variety. Apart from the classical areas of specialisation of Zoology, Botany, Microbiology, Genetics, Physiology, and Ecology, there are numerous related disciplines such Biochemistry, Biophysics, Bioinformatics, Biomedicine, Bioengineering, and Bioethics.

However, they can be divided into two fundamental areas: molecular and cellular biology on the one hand and organismic and systemic biology on the other.

General note: With the Bachelor of Science degree, students acquire a first degree qualifying them for a profession. However, at the Technical University of Darmstadt the Master of Science is the standard degree. It is therefore recommended that students complete a Master's programme.

There is a great number of potential fields of activity for biologists. In most cases, they will find employment in biological, pharmaceutical, and medical research and development at universities or in the industrial sector.

Biologists have particularly good prospects in physiology-oriented and molecular-biological disciplines such as microbiology, genetics, molecular biology, cellular biology, animal physiology, and plant physiology.

Apart from universities and research institutes, their employers primarily include businesses in the chemical, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, and food industry.

Furthermore, their employment opportunities extend to the areas of health care, environmental protection, scientific journalism, genetic engineering, forensics, or biological safety. Biologists with a Bachelor of Science degree may also work in public administration or for (trade) associations.

Lastly, their knowledge and skill is also in demand at institutions such as museums and zoological or botanical gardens.
