Master's Biology

Students of the master’s Biology aim to understand living systems to help preserve biodiversity, our environment and human and animal health and welfare. Biological issues are at the forefront of technological advances in today’s society. They are central to global concerns about how we affect our environment, and how our environment affects us. It is a unique intellectual challenge to understand the complexity of biological systems at scales ranging from single molecules to whole ecosystems and from single generations to evolutionary timescales.
