WELCOME TO THE WEB PAGE OF THE JOINT GRADUATE MASTERS PROGRAMME 'BIODIVERSITY'
Our advanced Masters course is an interdisciplinary degree programme, which was jointly launched by the Ruhr-University Bochum and the University Duisburg/Essen in 2013/14. International Bachelor students from all fields of Bioscience studies can apply for this innovative and practical MSc programme.
A team of 12 professors cover the complex and diverse topics within the field of biodiversity research. Our programme offers a broad range of opportunities for interdisciplinary and specialized research courses for all Masters candidates. Compared to other study programmes, the “MSc Biodiversity” in Bochum and Duisburg/Essen is outstanding for an innovative, multifaceted and interdisciplinary curriculum as well as for a unique research focus in the field of eukaryotic microorganisms such as fungi and protists.
Our Masters programme offers a multidisciplinary and far-reaching set of research that will prepare masters candidates for an array of successful academic, public and private-sector careers in the field of biology, biodiversity and other life sciences.
Bachelor students with a background in biology, ecology or related subjects are welcome to apply for the master's programme until the 15th of July.
