The M.Sc. program provides an advanced education in biology in a broad spectrum of areas, reflecting the great diversity of research conducted at Freiburg’s Faculty of Biology. This spectrum includes both all kinds of organisms and all levels of observation and complexity studied within the context of the biological sciences (from molecular structures, cells, tissue, and organs to organisms, ecosystems, and complex evolutionary processes).

The master’s program is research-oriented and trains students to conduct experimental scientific research.


Disclaimer
The versions of statutes with relevance to teaching and learning provided on this page by the Department of Legal Affairs (in particular admission and selection regulations as well as subject and examination regulations) are primarily for information purposes. This means that all amendments subsequently agreed upon by the University Senate have been integrated into the respective text of the original statutes; in the case of the examination regulations for bachelor's and master's degree programmes, this generally relates to extracts of the respective examination regulations (framework examination regulations, subject-specific provisions, and appendices).
The greatest care has been taken in writing these versions. Nevertheless, it cannot be entirely ruled out that errors may have occurred. Consequently, it is solely the officially announced statutes and statute amendments that are legally binding, i.e. as published in the Amtlichen Bekanntmachungen der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg im Breisgau [de] or, up to the year 2000, in the official gazette of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts.
