Explore life from genes to ecosystems
Plants, animals, and microbes all play a key role in the sustainability of life on Earth. The Master's programme in Environmental Biology offers you the opportunity to explore different organisational levels of life – from genes, cells, and organisms to populations and entire ecosystems.
In this programme, you will study the fundamental life processes of plants, animals and microbes. The interdisciplinary course content also offers you the chance to examine ecology, biology and animal behaviour from an evolutionary perspective.
Within the Environmental Biology Master, you can select a specialised track from the following:
- Plant Biology
- Fungal Biology
- Ecology and Natural Resource Management
- Biomarine Sciences & Palaeoecology*
- Behavioural Ecology
* Note: this track is being offered untill 2018/19. As from 2019/20 it will no longer be possible to enter this track.
Tailor-made study plan
Alternatively, you can develop an individualised curriculum suited to your unique interests. We offer you considerable flexibility in choosing specific subfields or topics within Environmental Biology. See the study programme and courses page
