As a basic science, biology explores the common principles of diversity and unity of all living beings and tries to explain the functional mechanisms of living systems with molecular terms and to formulate them in the form of laws about molecular and organic interactions. Biology analyzes and describes life processes in the area of ??molecules and macromolecular structures, examines the structure and function of single cells, plants, animals and humans and tries to explain the diverse relationships between living beings and to inanimate nature.

Program Structure

The mono bachelor's degree comprises the core subject and the general vocational preparation study area.

The general vocational preparation study area (ABV) comprises the following areas of competence: an internship, professional preparation (at least 10 CP) as well as one of the following areas of competence: foreign languages, information and media competence, gender and diversity competence, organizational and management competence, personal and social -Communicative competence, in which additional practical professional knowledge and skills are imparted. Aims, content and structure of the general vocational preparation study area are regulated for subject-related ABVs in the study and examination regulations of the Bachelor's degree in Biology as well as in a separate ABV study and examination regulations.

At the end of the course, the exemplary deepening and differentiation of a selected field of study takes place through the independent scientific development of a self-selected problem (Bachelor thesis).

The course regulations regulate the structure and process of the course. It contains detailed descriptions of the content and qualification goals of each individual module and an exemplary course plan. The examination regulations define the type and requirements of the module examinations. In the regulations, the credit points (CP) for each module or event as well as the workload in hours for the entire course are specified.

Career Prospects

Bachelor graduates have scientific knowledge and practical skills that qualify them for a job or a postgraduate course. 

Biologists can find work in a wide variety of research institutions dealing with, for example, genetic engineering, molecular biology or toxicology, but also at universities. Subsequent employers can be pharmaceutical companies, food companies, the chemical industry, but also federal and state authorities that deal with compliance and enforcement of laws in the area of ??environment and health. In addition to classic laboratory and office work, biology graduates can work in the field. In management positions, on the other hand, projects have to be managed in both marketing and sales, e.g. to analyze product ranges.

A master’s degree and, if applicable, a doctorate are prerequisites for management positions or employment in research and teaching.
