This programme provides an introduction into and description of the diversity of life. The student will gain knowledge of the structure, function, and relationship of organisms (systematics and phylogeny), and investigate the intricate and exciting interplay between these organisms and their environment (ecology). Furthermore, the programme explores the processes that govern the development of new forms of life (evolution).
The complexities of life, natural selection, and the grand, everyday dynamic interactions in nature are centre stage in biology. The programme’s
main objective is to produce graduates of a high international standard with cutting edge, all-around expertise in biology. You will gain both an excellent theoretical foundation and the vital practical skills necessary to continue a successful career in biology.
