BioGeoWissenschaften (Bachelor of Science)

Nature and the environment in the spotlight: The BioGeoWissenschaften degree program is aimed at prospective students interested in studying nature and the environment with a special focus on biodiversity and landscape ecology. One of its focal points is the analysis and evaluation of the ecological effects of human intervention on the landscape ecosystem.

The degree program combines the major subjects of biology and geography and complements them with basic knowledge from the fields of chemistry and physics as well as through program events covering socio-economic, legal and planning issues.

Graduates of this practice-oriented degree program have a broad spectrum of skills. Their future potential employers include federal and regional authorities specializing in environmental issues, municipalities and municipal associations, national and international organizations, and engineering and consulting firms. The Bachelor’s degree is also required for admission to a subsequent Master’s degree program.
