Description

Description de la branche d'études

Within the Basel life science program, the Department of Environmental Sciences offers a comprehensive 1.5 year Master's course in Plant Science for graduates with a background in biology (B Sc in biology or equivalent). The cornerstone of this course is an individual research project in one of the areas of plant science of about one year duration. The project ends with a written Master's thesis. The practical part is complemented by lectures, seminars, and excursions. The course builds upon the strength of the Department in the areas of physiological plant ecology, plant-microbe interactions, ecosystem sciences and sustainable land use. The program benefits greatly from the leadership of the Zurich-Basel Plant Science Center, a network integrating more than 600 scientists interested in plant science.

Description de la formation

Focal area of teaching and research

The core of the program is the Master's Thesis. Here you participate actively with your own research project, in the current research efforts of a team of plant scientists. You will combine your practical research efforts with courses designed to broaden your knowledge in plant- and ecosystem sciences and ecology. With a M Sc degree in Plant Science, you will have acquired cutting-edge research capabilities in your chosen field of specialization, as well as broad general knowledge in plant- and ecosystem-biology. This will enable you to enter a PhD program in all areas of biology, and to grasp opportunities in the agro-, pharma- and biotech-industries as well as in public research units and private enterprises in the domains of ecology and life sciences.

Main topics include:

  • Physiological plant ecology: Plant water relations - plant responses to drought – carbon balance and plant growth.
  • Ecosystem sciences: Biodiversity and ecosystem services – stable isotope biogeochemistry – sustainable land use.
  • Plant-microbe interactions: Microbial ecology in the soil and rhizosphere – mycorrhizal symbiosis.

 

Course structure

The Master of Science degree is a postgraduate degree that requires a successfully completed Bachelor’s program (B Sc in biology or equivalent). The program awards 90 ECTS credits in total. The Master’s degree program Plant Science 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
Specialized Master’s degree program Plant Science

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 roughly three years. After the acceptance of the dissertation there follows an oral examination covering the postgraduate studies in the doctoral subject.

Teaching diploma for secondary schools

he 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/ > Studium > Diplom Sekundarstufe II
