The Master in Biology broaches a number of topics, such as genetics, evolution, molecular and cellular mechanisms, physiology, the environment and biodiversity. The programme is therefore founded on various disciplines, including animal biology, plant biology, anthropology, cell biology and molecular biology. It allows students to increase their practical knowledge, primarily through laboratory work. It also allows students to do work placements in other fields, such as marine biology, ecology and alpine or tropical botany. In addition to the general Master of Science in Biology, which consists entirely of electives, a number of specialisations are available for a more targeted curriculum.
