Over the course of its existence, the Faculty of Science has become a stable educational institution with a diverse range of interesting and attractive fields of study. The societal significance of this institution is underscored by its research activities with considerable international acclaim.
The main tasks of the faculty are the development of interdisciplinary studies both in the areas of biological disciplines (e.g. courses in tropical and polar ecology, development of anthropology) and in relation to the newly introduced natural science disciplines at the intersection of biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, and computer science. Specialised double-field studies in cooperation with other USB faculties are also supported. Cross-border educational activities based on cooperation with Johannes Kepler University in Linz, Austria, and Deggendorf, Germany, are of particular importance in the structure of the faculty.
Part of the offer of study fields is also a multidisciplinary study of teacher training for secondary schools.
