Definition of the field of studies

The degree programme in biology imparts knowledge about scientific basics and about the individual branches of biology.


In the bachelor programme examinations about compulsory and elective subjects must be passed. These subjects are offered in the form of modules: lectures, exercise courses, conversatories, work placements and seminars are available. It is recommended to do a subject-relevant work placement, which can be done in the framework of an elective subject and which can be credited upon submission of a work report. The selection of focal courses allows students already at an early stage to concentrate on contents they are particularly interested in. The degree programme concludes with the submission of a written bachelor thesis and a pass grade on all preceding exams. Students can spend a study period abroad if they want to; they, however, have to make sure that they can do so without losing a semester.
