Our study programs

While following different approaches and highlighting different aspects, what all study courses offered by the Department of Life Sciences have in common is that they enable the student to explore the secrets of life. These our approaches contain courses in biology, in biotechnology, in chemistry, in food chemistry, in pharmacy, and in psychology. Moreover we offer an interdisciplinary graduate program in biochemistry/chemical biology and pharmaceutical engineering.

Life Science orientation

No matter what interests you most: The environment of a life science department is the strong point of studying in Braunschweig. Today the really exciting progress in science does not take place within isolated research disiplines any more, but where the disciplines meet and benefit from each other, such as in biotechnology, in biochemistry, in molecular biology, or in biophysical chemistry, to name but a few. In order to promote and to benefit from this development, the research disciplines represented here have joined each other to form the Department of Life Sciences.
