Biology is a natural science about nature and its principles. This field of study explores living and non-living forms of organisms, including humans, animals, plants and microorganisms. Biology analyzes their structures, functioninig, growth, classifications, evolution, origin, distribution and interrelationships. It has a broad spectrum of academic fields like anatomy, astrobiology, biomechanics, botany, biophysics, pathology, zoology, neurobiology, anthropology, evolutionary biology, ichthyology, histology, biochemistry, ecology, physiology and many others.
Modern biology pays significant attention to cell structures, chemical and organic relations between atoms and molecules, gene engineering and modeling of evolution. Graduates can work in many different positions or improve knowledge at scientific research.
The Graduate Certificate in Science is a flexible course designed for students who wish to expand on their undergraduate program or students who wish to change the direction of their focus.
This Second Cycle Degree Programme provides students with the high qualification and specialization needed to apply investigation methods, plan environmental recovery and reclamation interventions, evaluate environmental resources, manage and plan the territory as well as the coastal and marine systems, manage renewable energy sources, environmental-related technologies and clean products and processes.
This programme offers interdisciplinary knowledge of bioinformatics. Courses are jointly managed by the University of Tampere and University of Turku, and they take advantage of modern educational technology.
The programme concentrates on plant sciences and molecular biology and the integration of the disciplines, to provide healthy plants in a safe environment for food, non-food and health applications.
Our MSc Plant Science and Biotechnology degree provides training in modern molecular aspects of plant science and is suitable either for those who have done a more organism-based plant biology undergraduate degree or those from a non-plant biosciences background who wish to acquire knowledge and expertise in this area. Teaching is delivered by research active academics from the University of Leeds' Centre for Plant Sciences and is often aligned with their areas of expertise.
We offer a very comprehensive, interdisciplianry and fast track preparation for performing a PhD project at the Graduate School of Life Sciences (GSLS), University of Würzburg. Research topics for the Master program as well as for the subsequent PhD are clustered in the sections of Biomedicine, Integrative Biology, Infection and Immunity, and Neuroscience,
The importance of infectious diseases and the need to develop new strategies to combat microbial and viral infections remains a major global challenge. Our Infection and Immunity Masters degree addresses this by providing comprehensive training in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of infectious diseases.
Department of Applied Physics is located at the Kuopio Campus of the University of Eastern Finland (UEF) and offers two Master's degree programmes in English. Prerequisites for the both programmes are a university-level Bachelor's (B.Sc.) degree or equivalent on a suitable field of science, and a good command of academic English.
The Master of Scientific Studies is designed to provide specialised training in a specific field of study. The degree involves advanced level course work study in selected areas plus a thesis embodying the results of an approved research project.
In the University of Skövde, we offer a one-year Master programme in Molecular Biotechnology were you will use laboratory and computer-based techniques to study and modify genes and proteins. The techniques can be applied within the fields of human and animal health, agriculture and food industry to e.g. identify diseases and genetically engineer plants, cells and animals. In the programme you will also study the structure of genes and proteins as well as the understanding of their function and regulation.
Professionally accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS), the course aims to provide a high quality and professionally relevant post-graduate programme focussing on the relationship of theoretical knowledge to the practice of Biomedical Sciences. The course aims to utilise and extend your existing skills and knowledge, which reflects the contemporary state of your scientific discipline.
Human Biology is a 2-year interdisciplinary MSc programme, offering advanced theoretical and experimental training. The programme focuses on integrated and mechanism oriented patophysiology and pharmacology in order to give the students a comprehensive and intuitive understanding of the human organism in health and disease.
