Occupational fields

On this page, we offer a wide range of information about occupational fields. In the individual flyers, different areas of application and activities for graduates of the respective subjects are exemplified The fields of activity presented have proven to be promising, both in advisory discussions with students and through networking with our advisory colleagues from the various faculties of the University of Würzburg.


Further professions or occupational fields and detailed descriptions of entry/promotion opportunities, payment etc. can be found on the BERUFENET  page of the employment agency.

NOTE: We are currently revising our flyers. Therefore, not all brochures are available for download yet, but you will soon find them all here again! Please note: The flyers are in German only.

We look forward to hearing from you at any time to help us enrich the flyers with additional information on possible professions. If you are interested, please contact us directly:

Start-ups for students and graduates

We lend a helping hand to students and graduates navigating their professional opportunities, including the realisation of ideas. Students who are interested in start-ups are provided with individual consulting by the Career Centre and the Servicezentrum für Forschung und Technologietransfer (SFT) regarding start-up ideas and plans.
Furthermore, our programme offers workshops and talks for the acquisition of methodological competences that will be useful for the start-up phase. In cooperation with the SFT, we also hold the Social Innovators Challenge every year.

In addition to a typical research career, this flyer is intended to point out further possible occupational fields. The competences acquired in Biology studies are increasingly asked for in other areas outside the scientific landscape: in industry, in botanical and zoological gardens, in journalism.

Just as diverse as the Humanities subjects at the University of Würzburg are the career opportunities for graduates of these disciplines. In addition to typical fields such as journalism and education, possible fields of application are also in marketing or management departments.

Occupational fields for Geoscientists

As diverse as the sub-disciplines of the Geosciences are, so different are the occupational fields in which graduates can work. The flyer presents the fields of physical geography and human geography. In addition, it becomes clear that parts of the fields of application are interdisciplinary.
