Introduction to the programme
Would you like to work with both environmental and molecular biology?
Despite a common biological basis, today these two subjects are very different in their approach to biology. Nevertheless, molecular biological methods and techniques are increasingly used in modern environmental biology. In the master’s programme Environmental Biology + Molecular Biology, you can become qualified to, for example, use genetic engineering methods to explore population ecology issues. Or you can investigate the cellular mechanisms behind the toxicological effects of environmental chemicals for organisms.
You will learn about cell biology and physiology, molecular genetics, biochemistry, genetic and protein engineering and bio-informatics. You will gain insights into biological systems at all levels (from sub-cellular to ecosystems) and into the interactions between micro and macro-organisms and their environment. You will learn about the human impact on biological and ecological systems, genetic versus environmental impacts on organisms, as well as nutrient and element cycling processes in ecosystems.
You finish the programme by writing an interdisciplinary master thesis and you have the possibility to write it as an experimental 60 ECTS master thesis during 3. and 4. semester.
The programme provides you with a wide range of job opportunities in the public and private sectors within:
- Public or private research or control laboratories, for example in the healthcare or environmental sector
- Environmental control and consulting
- The biotech industry
- The education sector
- Consultancies, e.g. in environmental monitoring
- Government agencies with focus on environmental health
The master programme also qualifies graduates for admission to a PhD programme.
Applicants with other bachelor’s degree than those listed as qualifying for admission
If you hold another bachelor’s degree than the ones mentioned in this document, you can still apply for admission to the master’s programme. In order to gain admission you must have a relevant bachelor’s degree with qualifications corresponding to one of the bachelor’s degrees qualifying for admission. When you have applied, the university will assess the academic content of your bachelor’s degree. If the university assesses that your bachelor’s degree is relevant and gives you qualifications that correspond to one of the qualifying degrees, you may be offered admission. If the university assesses that your bachelor’s degree is relevant for admission to the master’s programme which you have applied for but that you lack few essential qualifications, the university may decide that you have to complete prerequisite studies amounting to no more than 30 ECTS points in order to be admitted. You must complete prerequisite studies before being enrolled in the master’s programme.
