What is the degree program about?
The “Modulstudien Naturale: Naturwissenschaften und Nachhaltigkeit” (MSN) offer first-year students orientation for a targeted and successful entry into the Bachelor’s degree programs of the Faculty of Natural Sciences as well as the Bachelor’s degree programs of FAU related to the subject area of sustainability. They are particularly suitable as preparation for all degree programs with basic content from biology, chemistry, geosciences, mathematics and physics.
They are aimed primarily at prospective students with a university entrance qualification who have a strong interest in natural science content and/or the interdisciplinary topic of sustainability, but who do not yet want to commit themselves to a specific course of study. In the Modulstudien Naturale, you can deepen and supplement your knowledge from high school or acquire the necessary basic and interdisciplinary prerequisites for successful study.
In addition, during the module studies you can take language courses to acquire the relevant language requirements, e.g. for a semester abroad or an English-language Master’s program, or to expand your existing knowledge. Participants of the module studies are regularly enrolled students in their first university semester, but not in their first subject-related semester. However, there is no entitlement to funding according to BAföG.
