We offer courses at bachelor's and master's level, as well as the opportunity to obtain a bachelor’s and master’s degree.


Bachelor's degree

We offer courses at bachelor's level, as well as the opportunity to do a bachelor degree project.

Teachers at the Department of Ecology, Environment and Plant Sciences give courses within several Bachelor Programmes. We also give one standalone “Introductory course” on this level as an evening course. All basic education in biology is administered by BIG – The Department for Biology Education – and more information about programmes, courses, admission etc can be found on their web pages.

At the BIG – The Department for Biology Education's website you can see which courses you can apply to. Most courses are taught in Swedish at this level, but there are a few in English as well. 

Is in the form of a course, “Degree Thesis, 15 hp”, given in Swedish. All courses are administrated by the Department of Biology Education.


Master's degree

We offer courses at master's level, as well as the opportunity to do a master degree project.

You can study courses in Ecology. Environment and Plant Sciences within these different Master’s programmes:

Genetic and Molecular Plant Science
Marine Biology
Biodiversity and Systematics
Ecology and Biodiversity

All master’s programs and courses in biology are organized and managed by Department of Biology Education (BIG). On the BIG website you can find information about the programs structure, entry requirements and on how to apply. There you can also see which courses that are mandatory on the different Master’s programmes. 

Most Master-level courses are given in English, with a few exceptions and you can study all the master courses within the master programmes above as separate courses. 

We offer master degree projects in the subject areas of Plant Systematics, Plant Physiology, Ecology and Marine Ecology and Ecotoxicology. Please contact the relevant director of studies below. 

Visit Department of Biology Education (BIG) for more formal information on master degree projects.

We currently offer these master degree projects.
