The Master Degree in Evolutionary Biology of the University of Padua belongs to the class LM-6 Biology. The Master completes the training in biological disciplines.
This Master Degree in Evolutionary Biology aims provide students with an advanced and operational preparation in the field of biodiversity, to be applied for safeguarding the biological heritage. The subjects covered by the program include the study of evolutionary mechanisms and dynamics, of reproductive and adaptive strategies, of morphological, functional, genetic and biomolecular variation with a special focus on the interactions between organisms and environment. The program integrates the knowledge required for the study of animal and plant evolution and for their conservation within thematic interdisciplinary courses, to provide an in-depth training in line with the request of the field.
In the second year of the master program, about two thirds of the student's teaching commitments are focused on carrying out an experimental thesis. The objective is to provide the student, through a significant work experience in a laboratory or in the field, with the opportunity to acquire the cultural tools and the skills necessary to carry out research activities and to play responsibility roles in conservation and management programs.
The master degree in Evolutionary Biology provide the basis for advanced training through PhD programs and the preparation need to work in agencies and organizations dealing with environmental protection and safeguarding.
