The structure and content of the studies

 

 

The first semester of the Master of Science in Behaviour, Evolution and Conservation is composed of mandatory courses aiming to complete the methodological skills acquired throughout the Bachelor studies, in particular scientific writing, as well as to reinforce knowledge in the fields of molecular genetics, phylogeny, evolution, and population biology. Students have the opportunity to become familiar with research by doing an introductory research project (First Step).

In the second semester, students must acquire 15 ECTS credits by following specialised courses. The course offering is enhanced by various collaborations, either with the Master of Science in Molecular Life Sciences of the School of Biology, or with external institutions (for example: with the Vaud Centre for Wildlife Preservation or the Haute Ecole Spécialisée in Environment of Lullier). Some courses are given in the form of field training courses as a way of discovering the fauna and flora of various environments (e.g., marine, alpine, Mediterranean). Concurrently, students integrate into one of the research groups associated with the Master and start their personal research work (Master thesis).

The third semester is dedicated to the completion of the Master thesis.
