Marine Biological bachelor courses

The bachelor courses at Marine Biological Section cover a wide range of topics in marine biology from introduction to marine organisms and habitats to studies of marine ecology and biological oceanography. These include field courses where we go sampling in the local coastal waters.

Apart from the mandatory courses in General Ecology, Organism Diversity and Field Biology (all in Danish), we offer an optional marine summer course and two international courses in Applied Marine Biology and Physiology of Aquatic Animals.

Bachelor thesis projects

Finally, there is the opportunity to sign up for a bachelor thesis project associated directly with one of the scientists at the section. The courses are listed below with links to more detailed descriptions.

The list is ordered alphabetically according to project title. Click the title to see details.
