About

The two-year International Master of Science in Biology at Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) offers practical and theoretical study of living organisms and how they interact with changing environments.

Overview

Knowledge of biological processes will help facing challenges concerning the effects of climate change and pollution on biological diversity and ecosystem services.

The Master of Science in Biology at Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) 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.

Our study programme gives students direct experience with current:

  • 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
  • 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.
