Bio Science and Health

An Applied Approach to Natural Sciences and Health

For an expanding market, economy and industry will in future be in increasing need of skills in the prevention and wellness areas. People’s stress is increasing just like the number of elderly and old people and the duration of occupational disability up to retirement age. Everybody wishes to keep or regain health as a valuable possession. Growing concern about a healthy life-style will become even more significant in future. The need for peace and rest and regeneration of the body in suitable surroundings within a short time, matched with personal needs, will grow just like the demand for appropriate offers for prevention, for suitable recommendations for a healthy diet, for suitable cosmetic products and medication which are available without prescription. With all these wishes, the budget must not be disregarded. In order to exist as company on a growing market of health products and offers, employees with profound knowledge in theory and practice in the field of natural sciences, nutrition and health are needed. It goes without saying that these employees have at their command the necessary management competence and high levels of commitment for customers on the national and international market.

The degree course Bio Science and Health qualifies in the field of natural sciences and  health. Subjects like chemistry, biochemistry, biology, physics and mathematics are in the curriculum just like nutritional sciences, physiology and anatomy, exercise and health, design and psychology. Business management subjects, law, documentation, inter-cultural competence complete the interdisciplinary course in the field of applied natural sciences and health.
