It is a degree programme in English intended for people interested in water biology who want to develop their interest in the animate world of the hydrosphere. The programme provides knowledge of water biology, based on biology, ecology, molecular biology, chemistry and geography. During classes in the laboratory, in the field, and during lectures, you will learn about animate and inanimate components of waters, in relation to the types of water bodies and the areas in which they occur. As a graduate of this course, you will be able to interpret and describe natural phenomena occurring in aquatic ecosystems.
The graduates of Hydrobiology degree programme will know:
- how to identify aquatic species of plants, animals and fungi
- understand the functioning of aquatic ecosystems,
- how to plan and perform the laboratory and field work,
- how to monitor the water environment, assess its quality and condition,
- how to use tools to protect and revitalize aquatic ecosystems.
Possible employment prospects for Hydrobiology graduates include the following professions:
- lab technicians
- specialists in environmental education
- university researchers and teachers
- owners and employees of companies and institutions performing tasks related to the protection of nature and the environment.
Students have access to modern, specialized research equipment of the Centre for Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (CBMiB) and the Mobile Center for Ecological Education and Environmental Monitoring (PotamON).
