Biology, Teaching Programme

Hot on the trail of the secrets of life: As a teacher, do you wish to pass on your love of biology to your students? Then a teaching degree in biology in Bayreuth is exactly the right choice. We place great emphasis on practice, which is why research-oriented internships run through all areas of biology, and are constant companions for students during their studies. But our students can also apply and expand their theoretical knowledge on excursions and at extracurricular places of learning such as Nuremberg Zoo and the Ecological Botanical Garden of the University of Bayreuth.

One nice thing about studying biology in Bayreuth is that there is a practical course for almost every lecture, in which you can revise and explore the theory. Subjects such as mathematics, chemistry, and physics lay the general foundations of the natural sciences so that you can better understand biological processes. The department is well-equipped and makes life a lot easier for students, especially with the many scripts available, which help them get through their exams. Free time is in short supply in a biology degree programme, because especially as a teaching assistant, you still have a minor subject keeping you busy.
