The life sciences deal with all structures and processes of a living being or in which living beings are involved. This includes the entire spectrum of life forms, from molecular building blocks to microbial, plant, animal and human organisms and their interactions with their living world and environment. Our bachelor's and master's programmes always deal with current scientific, technological and social topics.
