In master’s programme Evolutionary Biology, you identify evolutionary changes over time and study the origin and maintenance of biological variation all over the tree of life.
Evolutionary Biology: the right master’s programme for you?
If you are interested in gaining state-of-the-art knowledge of all aspects of evolutionary biology, this master’s specialisation is the right choice. You will be prepared for a PhD programme or research positions at universities or institutes.
What does this master’s programme entail?
Evolutionary changes over time and study the origin and maintenance of biological variation all over the tree of life. The mechanisms that drive the adaptation of organisms and their features are investigated at all biological levels. Thus, the specialisation includes genomics, functional developmental genetics, paleobiology, behavioral biology and evolutionary ecology. The important contribution of Naturalis to the programme makes this specialisation particularly attractive.
