The master study programme Global Change Biology is based on high-level research and the long-time experience of our Faculty staff. We offer lectures and courses in a wide range of biological sciences. Research conducted by our Faculty members includes macroecology and biogeographic modelling, development of widely-used ecological methods and software for community analysis and data handling, biotic invasions of European plant and freshwater communities and respective ecological and evolutionary implications of interactions with native organisms, bio conservation and ecosystem assessment testified by numerous evaluations for administration purposes and landscape planning, evolutionary ecology and phylogeny of selected plants and animals including the biogeographic reconstruction of European postglacial colonization history, and the physiology of stress in vertebrate and invertebrate animals using behavioural and neurobiological methods. The study programme highlights all these fields.

We are the first University in Poland to offer a double-diploma programme in biological sciences. The Master Programme managed in collaboration with Parthenope University of Naples (Italy) is organized under the auspices of the UNESCO Chair in “Environment, Resources and Sustainable Development”, of which Nicolaus Copernicus University is an official partner.

If you are a highly motivated and ambitious student this proposition is for you. The master study programme is in English and runs in collaboration with the Parthenope University of Naples in Italy.
