The bachelor's degree in biology aims to impart the necessary knowledge about research areas, topics, principles, theories and methods of the subject, taking into account the requirements of the world of work. This enables students to do scientific work, to form scientifically sound judgments, to critically reflect on scientific findings and to act responsibly. This applies on the one hand to the qualification to study master’s courses and on the other hand to the qualification for activities in the corresponding professional fields. Students acquire this competence through a combination of face-to-face teaching, virtual teaching and self-study, individually and in groups. Studying biology at the Humboldt University in Berlin also enables early participation in research projects. The course promotes internationalization through the possibility of studying abroad. In addition, interdisciplinary skills are taught. These enable the creation of interdisciplinary references and the acquisition of key qualifications such as language skills, intercultural skills, social skills, gender skills, methodological skills and information and media skills. Successful completion of the course qualifies you for work in basic and applied research in universities, museums, clinics, research institutes and companies in the fields of biology, medicine, medical technology, pharmaceutical development, biotechnology and environmental protection.
The bachelor's degree in biology offers a broad basic education in organismic biology (botany, zoology), physiology, microbiology, molecular cell biology and ecology. In addition, the knowledge necessary for understanding modern biological issues is imparted in mathematics as well as in the scientific disciplines chemistry (as a minor) and physics. Special features to be emphasized are the close connection with the biophysics course as well as the imparting of basic knowledge in immunology. In addition, offers from the areas of parasitology, developmental biology and theoretical biology can be selected in the advanced phase. Participation in a current research project is also part of the training.
