The Department of Biological and Environmental Science offers high-quality teaching and is founded on excellent research activities.  The Department is one of the largest at the University of Jyväskylä, and consists of four major educational and research divisions: Aquatic Sciences, Cell and Molecular Biology,  Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and Environmental Science and Technology.

Students at the Department of Biological and Environmental Science receive training at the basic level in all areas, and then tailor their advanced studies within their major subject area for completion of B.S., M.S. or Ph.D. degrees.  The Department is home to many non-Finnish students and staff, and teaching is done in both Finnish and English (see Studies). Additionally, we offer the International Masters Programme in Aquatic Sciences and participate in other multi-disciplinary International Masters Programmes: Nanoscience, Renewable Energy and Development and International Cooperation.

Outstanding achievements within each section of the Department are highlighted by the nomination of the Center of Excellence in Biological Interactions Research (2012-2017),  Centre of Excellence in Evolutionary Research (2006-2011) and the Centre of Excellence in Virus Research (2006-2011) by the Finnish Academy of Sciences.  For more details about these and other research activities within each section, see each of the divisions. For a complete list of the publications see the pages Research and Publications.
