STUDYING THE MASTER OF BIODIVERSITY
Hey there, thanks for your interest in our study programme.
Here you can find out more information on the topics of our programme and the training options we provide.
Our degree programme is organized in modules and has a duration of two years (4 semesters) involving a blend of coursework, individual research projects, and multiple platforms for interacting with other scientists.
As a Masters student, you’ll acquire a broad theoretical background and basic knowledge in the fields of Ecology, Evolution and Biodiversity within the first two semesters. Beyond this, you will be trained in typical field and laboratory work as well as modern molecular methods and “state of the art technologies”. During the last semesters, you will have the opportunity to work on an international research project with one of the various partner institutions in different countries. The chosen practical project can further be used as a basis for the master's project and form a component of the Masters thesis.
During the programme, you will become familiar with various techniques and approaches including field experiments, analysis of animal behaviour, mathematical modelling and modern genetic methods. You’re invited to check the detailed descriptions of the various courses and keep yourself up to date on upcoming deadlines during the semesters.
Please contact the student council (RUB or UDE) or any faculty member (RUB or UDE) if you have questions or need help finding the information you need about our programme.
