Description

The aim of the Biological and Environmental Science program is to produce experts in the fields of biology and environmental science. The program contains two specialization areas:

  • Sustainable management of inland aquatic resources;
  • Ecology and evolutionary biology.

The study content within aquatic science covers the management and sustainable use of inland waters, with specialization possible in lake and river ecology (including typology, pollution and conservation) or in fish biology and fisheries (including sustainable use of wild fish stocks, aquaculture, aquatic parasitology and fish diseases).

The study content within ecology and evolutionary biology ranges from genes and molecular biology to ecosystem functioning. Relevant courses cover basic ecology and evolutionary biology as well as theoretical modelling and practical applications.
