Interests that are a good basis for this study programme
If you are inquisitive and keen to understand how organisms work, you are likely to enjoy this study programme. In addition, you should be willing to engage with the broad field of behaviour, behavioural physiology and neural physiology using state-of-the-art technologies. You also need to have completed a subject-relevant first degree.
Behavioural Physiology at the University of Graz
On the master’s programme, you will look at neural and physiological mechanisms of behaviour, social interaction and behavioural aspects of animal breeding and husbandry. Biorobotics and the modelling and simulation of processes in behavioural biology will also be key elements of your research.
Doctoral Programme of Natural Sciences
The Doctoral Programme of Natural Sciences allows you to develop your own research interests further and to perfect your methodological skills. You will work independently to investigate academic questions and contribute to the development of knowledge and innovation in your subject area.
Preparation for a wide range of career paths
Their comprehensive theoretical and practical education will make graduates of the master’s programme well suited to many different fields of work. These include analysing animal and plant societies, conservation and species preservation, animal breeding and husbandry, behavioural and biodiversity research, evolutionary biology, agricultural sciences and biotechnology, laboratory physiology and pharmacological and biomedical work, writing expert reports or researching and teaching at (non-)university institutions.
