The Faculty of Science was established in 1920 as the fifth faculty of Charles University. It currently has 29 departments, 3 museums and a large Botanical Garden where the Study Department and some students’ facilities are located.
The Faculty of Science offers three educational levels, bachelor, master and doctoral. All bachelor and master programs include both theoretical teaching and practical exercises in laboratories, and some courses combine the academic studies of natural science with teacher training in a chosen field. Bachelor courses are introductions to deeper studies that follow on in the master’s programs. Master’s study programs train experts for scientific and research institutes, government careers, industry and the private sector. Graduates of the master’s courses with the teacher training element are qualified to teach in secondary schools and secondary vocational schools.
Faculty of Science aims to fully integrate research and education (especially at the PhD. level of study) and thus helps to fulfill the long-term intention of Charles University to become a research university. Excellent results of research at the faculty are repeatedly confirmed in the annual evaluations of the Research and Development Council. The faculty collaborates intensively with other faculties of Charles University, other universities, the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic and with other institutions and private companies.
Studies at the Faculty of Sciences are intended primarily to prepare students for a professional career in science and teaching (at high schools) in biology, chemistry, geography, geology and environmental science
We aim to attract highly motivated and talented students from around the world who wish to study at top level university. The international students receive the same education as the Czech students, who are selected according to a high standard.
The headquarters of the Faculty is situated at Albertov street no. 6 in Prague 2. Other buildings of the campus stand alongside nearby streets: Hlavova, Horská, Vinicná, Benátská, Na Slupi and Legerova.
