Biology is the science of life and living organisms. It describes and examines manifestations of living organisms, their inner processes, and their interrelationships.

In this highly diverse science, botany, zoology or microbiology are considered the classic subfields, while modern subfields include such disciplines as behavioral research, genetics, immunobiology or ecology. Moreover, many fields of biology, e.g. biochemistry, biomedicine or agrobiology, are linked to other natural sciences.

In this degree program students are first given the fundamentals in all subfields of biology as well as in the natural sciences physics, chemistry, and mathematics. Parallel to the above, students are given a steady flow of practical exercises, which develop their competencies in working independently in laboratories. Bonn’s teaching and research emphasis is on organismic biology, the plant sciences, neurobiology, molecular biotechnology, molecular biomedicine and microbiology. During their studies, students have the possibility to prioritize one of these areas. Students can also complement their professional training by acquiring skills such as working with specialist literature and the presentation of scientific results.

Possible lines of work:

Biotechnology in the pharmaceutical/chemical/food industries, health care sector, environmental protection, corporate environmental protection, landscape ecology, public relations, journalism, product/quality management, patents, academia (teaching/research at universities, research institutions, etc.)

At the University of Bonn, multilingualism and cultural diversity are considered to be valuable resources that complement subject-specific qualifications. This is why, in addition to curricular language modules, students have access to a diverse range of language-learning offers, including the independent-study offers at the Center for Language Learning (Sprachlernzentrum, SLZ) in which they can autonomously learn a foreign language or enhance existing language skills. Furthermore, students can apply for the “Certificate of Intercultural Competence” free of charge, which promotes extra-curricular and interdisciplinary activities of international or intercultural nature.
