Modules

The program is fully modularized to offer optimal choices of courses and maximal flexibility according to the European Credit Point Transfer System (ECTS). The module frame work is built on the following three learning categories:

  • Plant Biochemistry, Physiology and Molecular Biology
  • Plant Cell Biology and Development
  • Plant Biodiversity, Evolution and Systematics

 

Students collect a total of 120 credit points (CP) to obtain their Master degree, i.e. 30 CP per semester. For details please refer to the Examination Regulations (Prüfungsordnung).

The courses PBPM (Plant Biochemistry, Physiology and Molecular Biology), PCDU (Plant Cell Development and
Ultrastructure) and PSBE (Plant Systematics and Biodiversity) are obligatory theory modules.

It is also obligatory to take a minimum of one Practical Course of each area.
