About the faculty

The George S. Wise Faculty of Life Sciences is the oldest faculty at Tel Aviv University.  Previously, it was known as the University Institute of Natural Sciences and focused on traditional biological disciplines such as botany and zoology. Today, new scientific developments and technologies have not only changed these disciplines but created new ones such as nanotechnology and bioinformatics. The Faculty now houses 90+ research labs across a wide range of biological disciplines.  


About the MSc

The developments in biological science and the use of new technologies have blurred the classic division of the subject into sub-fields.  As a result, a broad and inclusive approach to solving fundamental problems in life sciences is needed today, requiring interdisciplinary knowledge and the use of a range of technologies. Graduate students must therefore have interdisciplinary training that is not focused on the specific field of their research.

We offer three English-language tracks of MSc degrees - Biochemistry, Ecology and Environmental Studies, and Genetics - in our four departments:

School of Zoology

School of Plant Sciences and Food Security

School of Neurobiology, Biochemistry & Biophysics

School of Molecular Cell Biology & Biotechnology
