Master in Biology [60.0] - BIOL2M1
The Master in Biology (60 credits) is designed to train ‘generalist’ biologists who can grasp the scientific foundations of how living organisms work. The knowledge they will acquire involves two different levels in the complexity of living organisms which also relate to two option courses: first, biochemistry, molecular and cellular biology, then biology of organisms and ecology. The programme is mostly made up of activities borrowed from the first year of the Master (120 credits) of the same name.
The programme comprises core subjects of 30 and an option course of 30 credits.
Students must choose one of the following focuses : research, professional (biotechnology) or teaching.
The option courses available are : biochemistry, molecular genetics and microbial cellular physiology, plant molecular genetics and cellular physiology, animal and human molecular genetics and cellular physiology.
One option to choose between
Holders of the Master in Biology with an option course in biochemistry, molecular and cellular biology may go on to the degree of Master in Biochemistry, Molecular and Cellular Biology (120 credits) subject to a further year of training and a more advanced dissertation.
Holders of the Master in Biology with an option course in biology of organisms and ecology may go on to the degree of Master in Biology of Organisms and Ecology (120 credits) subject to a further year of training and a more advanced dissertation.
