Courses

In Vienna there is a huge variety of courses on evolutionary topics. On this page you can find a selected overview of courses with evolutionary content at universities and research institutions in and around Vienna for the running term. For more comprehensive course lists use the course registers of the University of ViennaIST Austria, the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (Boku) and the University of Veterinary Medcine Vienna.

Study programs with a large amount of evolutionary biological content include the Master’s program “Genetics and developmental biology” as well es the Master’s program “Biomathematics”. Starting with the winter term 2016/17, the University of Vienna and Vetmeduni Vienna offer the new Master’s program “Evolutionary Systems Biology”.
