Students learn the theoretical and practical fundamentals of this discipline while also receiving an introduction to the methods and techniques used in modern biological research. Students can choose to emphasize various fields in biochemistry, biodiversity, developmental biology, evolution, genetics, molecular biology, neurobiology, ecology, plant sciences, physiology, behavioral biology, and cell biology within their studies. The program utilizes model systems of plants, animals, and microorganisms, which permit students not only to gain a broad range of biology-specific knowledge, but also to develop an advanced focus on current fields of research.
