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.

Available Orientations:

  • General (electives)
  • Specialisations
  • Biodiversity and systematics
  • Genetics, development and evolution
  • Bioinformatics and data analysis
  • Molecular plant science
Students may earn up to 30 credits while on exchange. They may also conduct research outside the university, under the supervision of a faculty member, or do a work placement at a external laboratory in order to complete their Master’s degree.The Master of Science in Biology leads to a number of professions both in Switzerland and abroad, including:
  • Museums and botanical gardens
  • Bioinformatics
  • Ecology-oriented services
  • Scientific journalism
  • Scientific consulting in governmental or private organisations which finance or supervise research
  • Banking sector (for scientific consulting)
  • Fundamental and medical research in public institutions
  • Scientific research and consulting in biotech and pharmaceutical companies
  • Biology teaching in middle school and high school
