Description of the programme:

The Biology BSc line offers full 3-year-education in biology. The study program for the full-time training offers a complete education in biology, with special directions particularly in neurobiology, genetics, microbiology, animal and plant ecology, botany, zoology, and plant physiology. Special directions in the second year have two modules: infra-individual (means more laboratory practice and cellular biology) and supra-individual (means more ecology) courses. Each module has 5-8 subjects with lectures, seminars and laboratory practices. The basic subjects are presented in lectures, seminars and laboratory work. The program provides a wider view of the related scientific fields (chemistry and physics). The students will familiarize their knowledge with the most modern instrumentation in our new research centre. It covers all aspects of education, research and innovation in the fields of biomedical, natural and environmental sciences. It also provides an opportunity to join the research work in 22 different research groups operating in the building. The program requires completion of 180 credits.
