Study start 2019
Welcome programme for all new Master’s students
Welcome to all new master students at the Faculty of Natural Sciences (NV).
All new Master’s students: at the NV-faculty the semester starts with a compulsory information meeting in Natural Science Building auditorium R1 on Thursday August 15 at 08:45 (registration starts at 08:15).
- Students from outside of Norway and the Nordic countries: compulsory activities start earlier. Please visit the tailor-made semester start information page for details.
- Lectures in master courses will in most cases begin in week 35, Monday August 27.
Thursday 15 august kl. 12.15 – 15.00
Monday 19 to friday 23 august
Monday 19th – Friday 23rd August)
Compulsory Introductory course for all MSc students at Department of Biology
About the Programme
The two-year International Master's in Biological Science program offers practical and theoretical study of living organisms and how they interact with changing environments.
Knowledge of biological processes will help facing challenges concerning the effects of climate change and pollution on biological diversity and ecosystem services.
It will also help us to maintain the global food supply and improve human health and well-being.
These are all active areas of teaching and research in the Department of Biology at NTNU.
We offer courses and Master's research projects that cover the full spectrum of biology, from biomolecules and cells to populations and ecosystems, in four fields of study:
• Cell and Molecular Biology
• Ecology, Behaviour, Evolution and Biosystematics
• Biodiversity and Systematics (Nordic Masters)
Our study programme gives students direct experience with current biological methods, such as molecular methods for cloning genes, DNA sequencing for parentage analysis and genetic variation in wild populations, analysis of complex genomic and metabolic networks, physiological measurements in wild and captive organisms, captive breeding and artificial selection, field experiments on plants and animals in environments ranging from the arctic to the tropics, or theoretical modeling. Our research labs support cutting-edge instrumentation. Field work can be based at our field stations on the Norwegian coast and in the Dovre Mountains, or as far away as Tanzania and Svalbard. English is the main language of instruction in all our Master's courses. Master's projects are supervised by Department of Biology and Department of Natural History, but often involve co-supervisors from other research entities such NINA or SINTEF.
