What will I learn?
Biology is considered an important leading science of the 21st century, which influences numerous areas of society. As a trained biologist, you make a significant contribution to the sustainable management of a wide variety of social and global challenges. Examples include climate change, biodiversity crisis, scarcity of resources, food security, health and medicine, demographic change, education and training, as well as political discourse and legislation. The bachelor’s degree in biology at PLUS gives you a fundamental understanding of the organization and processes of life, from the level of molecules and cells to organs and organ systems to the level of populations, ecosystems and the principles of evolution. The course offers a well-founded education in the central subjects of biology, their methodical working methods as well as basics in mathematics/statistics, chemistry and physics.
What makes Salzburg so special as a place to study?
In addition to the high-quality training, the course scores with small group sizes and thus more intensive supervision in the internships. We provide sufficient internship places for compulsory courses, which means that there are almost no waiting times and study delays. Due to the variety of biological research directions at the University of Salzburg, you have the opportunity to get to know various research and application areas of biology. The varied nature around Salzburg offers numerous possibilities for interesting excursions.
Which career opportunities do I have?
The solid and broad theoretical and practical basic training opens up a wide range of professional opportunities for you in research, development, education and sales in both public and private companies and institutions, as well as in professional independence in the areas of ecology, sustainability, biodiversity, Agriculture, forestry and fisheries as well as in the medical and health sector, biotechnology and environmental analysis, environmental protection and nature conservation, landscape planning, evaluation and care, scientific communication and education, resource and sustainability management, public administration, management of museums, botanical and zoological gardens and natural science collections.
