Integration of Research in the SIA study programme

SIA fully integrates the research priorities of the faculty in Witzenhausen and the third research focus (Resource protection and food security in rural areas of the tropics and subtropics) of the faculty in Göttingen. Moreover, the first and second research focal points of the faculty in Göttingen (molecular biology and biotechnology as well as biodiversity management) are taken up in individual modules of the three specialization options.

In the framework of MSc thesis research in the SIA programme, preference is given to practical studies in graduate schools and research programmes of the two faculties, in Germany, Europe and worldwide. Thus, SIA students can count on reliable introduction to the principles of scientific work.
This promotes an intensive involvement in the practical aspects of scientific work, and of questions concerning labour organization and the solution of administrative problems.
