Ecology and Environmental Sciences:
Studying in Bayreuth

Located in scenic northern Bavaria, Bayreuth is a good place to study ecology and environmental sciences. Since its foundation in 1975, this has been a recognised focus of the University of Bayreuth. With over 30 research groups at BayCEER, research is broadly based - and our students benefit from this!

Doctoral Programme in Ecology and Environmental Research PEER

The structured doctoral Programme "Ecology and Environmental Research" PEER is part of the Bayreuth Graduate School of Mathematical and Natural Sciences (BayNAT), and provides interdisciplinary methodological training for doctoral students in ecology and environmental research.

Overview of degree programmes with an environmental focus - as of April 2024
(B.Sc.= Bachelor of Science, M.Sc. = Master of Science):

Bio­logy B.Sc. (German):

Biology is the science of life; it has an extremely broad range of research areas. The bachelor's programme offers the perfect opportunity to enter the exciting and far-reaching world of biology, from biochemical processes in microbes to the ecology of large mammals. A wide range of courses are offered; they revolve around the central areas of molecular biology and ecology.

Symbolbild Experiment

Bio­di­ver­sity und Eco­logy M.Sc. (German):

Species and biotope conservation as well as decline in biodiversity have received more and more attention since the 1980s. The international master's programme Biodiversity & Ecology at the University of Bayreuth focuses on the origins, spread, ascertainment, and functional meaning of genetic populations, species, and ecosystems.

Symbolbild Messturm

Geoecology B.Sc. and M.Sc. (German):

Geo-Ecology is an environmental programme of study in the natural sciences in which the chemical, physical, and biological relationships between the living environment, air, water, soil, and rock are investigated and strategies for sustainability and environmental protection are developed. This programme of study was developed in Bayreuth and has a long tradition.

Symbolbild Konferenz

Global Change Ecology M.Sc.:

Global changes play a crucial role in political decisions in the 21st century. The international master's programme Global Change Ecology addresses these issues. The programme focuses on the natural sciences, however a strong link to the social sciences is also maintained.

Symbolbild Probennahme

Environmental Chemistry M.Sc.:

International, interdisciplinary, and unique – these words best describe the new master’s programme Environmental Chemistry that will be taught entirely in English at the University of Bayreuth starting in Winter Semester 2016/17. It is geared towards bachelor's graduates who are interested in chemistry and environmental science and who would like to work in a global environment.

Symbolbild Berglandschaft

Environmental Geography M.Sc.:

Environmental changes at any scale, from global to local, are of crucial importance to life on planet Earth. Physical geography is among the core disciplines addressing and examining these environmental changes. This English-taught master's programme is set to launch in Winter Semester 2016/17.

Symbolbild Grüne Lunge

Environment, Climate Change and Health (M.Sc.):

Environmental and climate changes are related to substantial physical and mental hazards of humans. For an appropriate management of these difficulties, the study program aims at understanding the correlation between environment, climate change and health from a scientific and educational point of view.

Symbolbild Mikroskopie

Mole­cular Eco­logy M.Sc. (German):

Plants, animals, and human beings are capable of adapting to environmental conditions on a molecular level. Investigating these mechanisms along with the interdependency between organisms at a molecular level is the focus of this modern, research-oriented master's programme.
