Description

Description de la branche d'études

Within the Basel life science program, the Department of Environmental Sciences and its associates offer a comprehensive Master course for graduates with a background in biology. The course builds upon the local strength in Zoology and Evolutionary Biology in general and in evolutionary genetics and genomics, population biology, developmental biology and evolutionary ecology in particular.

Description de la formation

Focal area of teaching and research

Some key aspects of the Master in Animal Biology are:

  • We offer a broad spectrum of course modules from which preferred topics can be chosen.
  • We offer attractive workshops and field courses in Switzerland and abroad.
  • We employ modern laboratory methods, including genomic techniques.
  • In our field work, we integrate population biology across scales.
  • Our teaching focuses on interactive courses that lead to independent thinking and the development of conceptual strength in topics ranging from molecular evolution, evolutionary developmental biology to population biology and metapopulation ecology.
  • Master students will do a guided, yet independent research project within any of the groups associated with the master program. Current research topics include the evolution of host-parasite interactions, epidemiology, speciation, adaptive radiation, sexual selection, evolution of hermaphrodism and mating systems, evolutionary developmental biology, evolutionary genomics and the evolution of the immune system.
  • The master thesis will be written in English. Most theses will lead to publication in international peer-reviewed journals.

Course structure

The Master of Science degree is a postgraduate degree that requires a successfully completed Bachelor’s program. The program awards 90 ECTS credits in total. The Master’s degree program Animal Biology is a so called mono-course consisting of only one core subject. Supervised practical work over the course of one year constitutes the core of the studies.

Plan de la formation

One ECTS credit point roughly equals 30 hours of studying.

Curriculum master studies ECTS
Master’s degree program Animal Biology
Master’s thesis 50
Master’s examination 10
In-depth professional studies 30
Total 90

Combinaison des branches

The degree programs at the Faculty of Science are generally mono-courses with the possible addition of an in-depth subject and an elective subject. The Master’s degree program Animal Biology does include an elective subject; however, no other subjects are required.
 
It is possible to study biology in combination with a second subject from the Faculty of Humanities or the sports sciences (see UNI INFO “Biologie - ausserfakultäres Fach”).

The professional exam for the teaching diploma for secondary schools requires a Master’s degree in one or two subjects (i.e. Biology). At least one of the two subjects has to be successfully completed at a Master’s level. For the second subject at least 90 ECTS credits have to be awarded in consultation with the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland (FHNW) and the teaching commission of the respective subject. The mandatory courses in biology are stated in the appendix of the guidelines to the Bachelor studies in biology.

Diplôme

  • Master haute école universitaire HEU

Master of Science in Animal Biology

Débouchés

Doctorate

A Master of Science in Biology qualifies for a doctorate in biochemistry, biophysics, botany, computational biology, genetics, microbiology, molecular biology, neurobiology, structural biology, cell biology or zoology. Transfaculty doctorates are possible in the fields of epidemiology, history of the sciences, medical-biological research and pharmacology.

The doctoral studies last three to four years. After the acceptance of the dissertation an oral examination covering the postgraduate studies in the doctoral subject has to be passed.

 

Teaching diploma for secondary schools

The teaching diploma enables teaching within the general school system at the Secondary Level II and is based on the academic degree at Master’s level of a university in one or two subjects. In addition, two semesters of vocational training at the school for teacher education at FHNW have to be completed. The diploma does not require a Master's degree in a second subject; however, it is advisable due to better career options later after graduation. Details are to be found in UNI INFO «Lehrdiplom für Maturitätsschulen». Also see: www.fhnw.ch/ph > Studium > Diplom Sekundarstufe II
