The degree program Organismic Biology, Evolutionary Biology and Palaeobiology (OEP-Biology) is a research-oriented, international degree program that aims to provide students with a broad understanding of all aspects of organismic biology. Evolutionary biology and biodiversity research combine different disciplines such as systematics, phylogeny, paleobiology, physiology, ecology, molecular biology, ethology and many others.

Students are taught a wide range of methodological skills in scientific research that enable them to solve scientific problems in international and interdisciplinary research groups and networks. One focus is on practical research experience in the field and in the laboratories of the research groups involved, as well as in the large collections of the Alexander Koenig Zoological Museum, the Goldfuß Museum for Paleontology and the Botanical Gardens of the University of Bonn. Teaching in OEP biology is theory-oriented and aims to enable students to think critically, analytically and strategically.
