M.Sc. study programme Marine Biology

Initiative Type: Training

Belém Statement Area: Climate Variability, Ocean Observation, Ocean Resources

Initiative Location: Germany

Time Frame: Ongoing


The revised M.Sc. Marine Biology programme offers two study profiles: Marine Biology and International Studies in Aquatic Tropical Ecology (ISATEC). Marine Biology is strongly research-oriented. The graduates are trained to develop hypotheses-driven research concepts and to design appropriate experimental approaches in order to answer profound questions related to the large field of marine ecosystem and organism functioning and of potential impacts of local, regional and global environmental change. ISATEC has a more applied focus, addressing the sustainable use and conservation of tropical coastal ecosystems such as coral reefs and mangroves.
