DescriptionThe Master’s programme in Biology will strengthen your analytical skills and challenge and develop both your critical and creative way of thinking. Enhancing the fundamental biological knowledge gained in your bachelor’s degree, you will experience many combinations of theory, observation and experimental research during the Master’s programme, which consists of laboratory work, field excursions, lectures and seminars.
Individual Study PlanOn commencing the programme, you compose your own individual study plan in collaboration with a lecturer. The considerable freedom of choice offered is an excellent opportunity for in-depth study in one of the many disciplines within biology – genetics, evolution and ecology, ecophysiology, aquatic biology, microbiology, or ecosystem function and management.
Depending on which specialisation you choose, you will get the opportunity to work on field stations in Denmark, the Arctic regions and on Aarhus University’s research vessel, Aurora.
Student LifeDuring your time as a student in the Master’s programme in Biology you will have close contact with the lecturers, who are conducting research and working with the latest knowledge within their academic field. This gives you the opportunity to work with research groups and in an international research environment.
The Department of Bioscience has a great student environment with both academic and social activities. The department has its own student- driven newsletter as well as a student committee that keeps students informed about departmental activities. Several student organisations in the department organise academic activities, excursions, celebrations and social events.
CareersAarhus University trains biology graduates for the regional, national and international job markets. Graduates in bioscience will find work across a wide range of fields and institutions: mostly within research, administration and consultancy, but also in teaching and communication in private and public sectors. Biologists work across many fields in biology, ranging from biotechnology, nature and the environment to biological production within agriculture and the fishing industry. Many work as consultants or environmental officers in the field of environmental administration and management. Some biology graduates have found work in the media and publishing world, or as nature consultants.
