The MSc, or Master of Science, is an internationally recognized academic degree that indicates proficiency and knowledge of a given topic or field. Most MSc programs take about four years to finish, after which some join the workforce while others continue on in the classroom. 

Learning more about the biological aspects of the human body can be the basis for further study in pharmacology or in medical school. For those who want to teach science, a biology education can be combined with training to earn a teaching credential.

Finland, officially the Republic of Finland, is a Nordic country situated in the Fennoscandian region of Northern Europe.

Helsinki is the capital city of Finland. It is located in the Region of Uusimaa and has a population of over 600,000 inhabitants. It is home to several universities and other institutions of higher education.

How to avoid microbial spoilage of food?

All life on earth is based on microbes. Microbial processes run global nutrient cycles. Present microbiological knowledge is applied in medicine, in the industry and in food production. With techniques based on microbiology and microbial biotechnology, we may even apply methods to save the environment. If you want to know more about microbes and the biotechnological applications and learn what research techniques are used to study viruses, bacteria and other microbes, the Master's Programme of Microbiology and Microbial Biotechnology are for you.

Goal of the pro­gramme

Why are microbes the most important group of organisms on our planet? How is knowledge of microbiology applied in medicine and industry, or in food production? What research techniques are used to study viruses, bacteria and other microbes? These are important questions, and you can find answers to these and many others in the study of Microbiology and microbial biotechnology.... [-]

Which spe­cies are able to ad­apt to en­vir­on­mental change?

Ecology and evolutionary biology offer a perspective on biology from the level of genes to communities of species. In the master's degree program, you can become familiar with a wide variety of topics in three areas: ecology, evolutionary biology, and conservation biology. The program is diverse and multidisciplinary: teaching is done with lectures, laboratory and computer training courses, interactive seminars, study tours and field courses. The field courses range from the northern subarctic region to tropical rainforests. The Centres of Excellence of Metapopulation Biology and Biological Interactions are located in our department....

How can plants help us cope with global challenges?

Life on Earth depends on solar energy captured by plants - they are the base of most food webs and underpin the functioning of all major ecosystems. Plants release the oxygen we breathe. They convert solar energy into chemical energy, providing us with food, fibres, renewable energy sources, and raw materials for many industries. Plants do not carry out these processes in isolation. They interact with other organisms and the physical and chemical environment, communicate and actively adjust to their circumstances. How do they do these things and how can we profit from understanding them? When you have graduated from the Master’s Program in Plant Biology at the University of Helsinki you will have the answers to these big questions, and more.... [-]
