Study with us

The Department of Ecology, Environment and Plant Sciences (DEEP) offers a wide range of courses on all levels, including Bachelor’s, Master’s, and PhD.

All undergraduate programs and courses in biology are organized and managed by BIG (department of Biology Education), but the teaching itself is conducted by teachers and researchers from the Biology Departments at Stockholm University.

On BIGs website you can find necessary information about course content, structure and entry requirements, and how to apply for courses or programs.


Meet Tim from Luxembourg – one of our master students


Tim Chambers from Luxembourg is one of many international students at Stockholm University. Tim is studying at the Master's Programme in Ecology and Biodiversity and especially interested in spiders. Hear his story in the film above or read about it here:

"It was never like a big romantic idea"


Master degree projects

We offer master degree projects in plant physiology, plant systematics, marine biology and ecology. Apply for the master degree projects by contacting the supervisor for the project!
