The degree program in Organismic Biology, Evolutionary Biology, and Palaeobiology (OEP-Biology) is designed for those who seek a deep, research-oriented education with an international perspective. This program offers a comprehensive understanding of organismic biology, integrating disciplines such as systematics, phylogeny, paleobiology, physiology, ecology, molecular biology, and ethology. Students gain a wide array of methodological skills essential for scientific research. These skills prepare them to tackle scientific challenges within international and interdisciplinary research groups and networks.
