What are the effects of climate change on sea life? How does a disease like cancer arise? What happens in the brain when you are asleep?The field of Biology is concerned with how plants, animals and humans are made up and how they function. The difference with biology at secondary school is that this degree programme involves more science: you will study more mathematics, physics and chemistry.Scientists are expanding their horizons more and more. As a biologist, you will increasingly work together with scientists of other disciplines. This interaction will provide you with useful knowledge.Choose the specialization that suits you bestMany universities offer Biology degree programmes. The big advantage of studying in Groningen is that you can choose exactly the specialization that suits you best. The first semester covers basic topics that are essential for all fields of biology. After the first semester you can choose to follow the Major in Ecology and Evolution or the joint programme for the Majors in Molecular Life Sciences, Behaviour and Neurosciences, Biomedical Sciences or Integrative Biology. During the second year, these Majors will gradually start to differentiate. In the third year, you start with a Minor of one semester, in which you can either broaden or deepen your knowledge. In the last semester, you will complete your Bachelor’s programme with a Bachelor’s project in the specialism of your choice.All your lecturers are involved in research in some way. Their research will help you become acquainted with the many new developments in the field of life sciences.
