Bio Science and Health*

Bio Science and Health B.Sc.Applied natural sciences and healthcare

Changing demographics in Germany resulting from longer life expectancy and lower birth rates are creating a host of new challenges for the healthcare sector. In addition to the constant demand for primary healthcare, a new market for the nutrition, health, quality of life as well as for older generations is beginning to emerge. While doctors and hospitals continue to focus on healing and treating patients, the healthcare industry as a whole must embrace new long-term care strategies as well, for example preventative services tailored to the individual, in order to mitigate systemic deficits and continue operating smoothly. This dynamic is driving a need for healthcare specialists with extensive theoretical and practical knowledge from the natural sciences, nutrition and health to meet and keep pace with demand.

The degree programme Bio Science and Health B.Sc. will equip you with this valuable expertise in the natural sciences, health and healthcare management. Your broad training will enable quick and effective onboarding in new companies and roles, while your practical experience puts you in the position to not only shape current processes, but also tackle new tasks and challenges in a systematic and effective manner. The curriculum seizes on these challenges, incorporating current industry tendencies in the natural sciences and healthcare as models to study and learn from. Refer to the course schedule for this degree programme for a more detailed breakdown of topics you will study.

Career paths and skills

Whether in occupational healthcare, hospitals and clinics, the chemical or cosmetic industries, or in health and wellness: Bio Science and Health B.Sc. qualifies you to assume key roles in areas where the natural sciences and healthcare meet.
