Why choose studying at the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics?
The Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics is the most renowned scientific-educational institution in the area of natural, mathematical and computer sciences composed of science-teaching Departments of Biology, Physics, Geography, Chemistry, and Mathematics. Today, the Faculty of Natural Sciences is a respectable higher education institution, not only at the University of Sarajevo but throughout Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Through three-year and four-year undergraduate studies students acquire fundamental knowledges from biochemistry and physiology, ecology, genetics and microbiology (at the Department of Biology), applied mathematics, theoretical computer sciences and informatics (Department of Mathematics), regional and spatial planning, tourism and environmental protection (Department of Geography), theoretical, experimental and medical radiation physics (Department of Physics), chemistry and quality control, the environment (at the Department of Chemistry). At all departments, the teaching-scientific process is carried out in the teaching line of study in which future teachers and professors are being trained for work in elementary and secondary schools. Since 2018, the Department of Mathematics has introduced a Professional study lasting for 4 semesters (2 years) with a total of 16 compulsory courses including Industrial Practice and Final Project. This study programme aims to provide professional development and training of IT programmers through two years of professional training with the possibility of student mobility in the first cycle of studies in the Theoretical Computer Sciences line of study.
What after completing the studies?
Upon completion of the studies, students are, owing to the skills acquired at the Faculty, trained to work in the secondary and primary schools, scientific research institutes, expert laboratories in government services, software companies and institutions in the financial and IT sector. Also, there are great possibilities of employment in chemical laboratories of different profiles, then in various branches of the chemical as well as in the pharmaceutical industry, metallurgy, petrochemicals, and in medical institutions. Students who graduate from the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics can also work as court experts, arts restorers and forensic experts. The knowledge gained in the undergraduate study also enables work in the fields of tourism (institutes, ministries and agencies), environmental protection, and a large number of institutions dealing with regional and spatial planning at all levels. According to the Bologna principles, the continuity of education at all Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics’ departments is achieved through a year-long study at the second cycle (II) and a three-year (doctoral studies) study at the third (III) cycle, which through its study plans, delivers high quality professional and scientific further training and development in the fields of undergraduate studies courses.
