Studying at the Department of Biology

Studying biology at our department consists of an essential combination of theory and practice from the first year on.

Practical studies in our laboratories are conducted in small groups led by experienced scientists, whereas field courses take place in our various research stations, from the marine environment in southern archipelago to the tundras of northern Lapland.

Students are an integral part of our scientific community throughout their studies, so specializing is possible in any of our fields of study: ecology, physiology, genetics, cellular and molecular biology or a combination of these in evolutionary biology.
