Introduction to the programme
The interaction between living animals, plants and micro-organisms and their physical, chemical and biological environment
How does nature work? How do we make the best possible use of the nature that surrounds us, so we get the maximum benefit, while ensuring that our descendants can also draw on this resource?
These are issues you will work with at the bachelor subject Environmental Biology, which basically concerns the interaction between living animals, plants and micro-organisms and their physical, chemical and biological environment.
All species’ distribution is primarily regulated by the physical and chemical conditions in the environment (e.g. climate, availability of water, etc.), but interaction with other organisms also plays a role, since species often compete for the same scarce resources and/or prey on each other. We humans are also increasingly affecting animals and plants, either through hunting, fishing, livestock farming and agriculture, or through the production and discharge of pollutants into the environment.
All teaching and project writing is conducted in English.
Daily life while studying
The study environment is very international, with one-third of the students come from abroad. There is a vibrant social environment, where students and teachers interact. There will be field trips of both an academic and social nature, such as bird watching and mushroom gathering, as well as barbecues and Christmas parties. We often meet with students from the other natural scientific disciplines in the famous 'Kemobar' on Fridays.
From bachelor to master
The two subjects you choose for your bachelor can be continued on our master programmes. Your bachelor degree also provides access to other of our master programmes.
