How do biology and genetics support evolution?

(Bachelor of Science)

Brief description

Biology is the science of living nature. She describes and examines the manifestations of living systems, be it at the molecular level, in organisms or in ecosystems. The modern biosciences are the basis for interdisciplinary scientific areas such as molecular biology, biochemistry, biotechnology, bioinformatics and ecology.

The bachelor's degree in biology is jointly organized by Leibniz University Hannover (LUH), the University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover (TiHo) and the Hannover Medical School (MHH) and organized by the Central Biology Facility (ZEB). Enrollment takes place at the LUH. The participation of the three universities offers students a wide range of options in an interdisciplinary environment. Modules of the natural sciences as well as botany, plant physiology, molecular biology and genetics are offered in particular by the LUH, modules from zoology, animal and human physiology by the TiHo and MHH.

Scientific working methods are conveyed through a high practical component in teaching. After completing the scientific basics, the course offers the opportunity to deepen in a certain area. The course is divided into a compulsory, compulsory elective and elective area with the General Studies.
