General information

  • 240 ECTS
  • 4 years
  • Transmit to students a view of Biology as an integral part of education and culture that allows them to recognise its presence in Nature through Science, Technology and Arts
  • Develop analytical and abstraction skills in students and logical and rigorous thinking through the study of Biology
  • Train graduates in the nature, methods and the most important purposes of the various branches of biology, giving them access to a job position with a medium-high level of responsibility, or continue further studies in scientific or technological disciplines with a high degree of autonomy
  • Studies leading to the undergraduate degree in Biology will:
  • Teaching and research, primarily in: Healthcare; Industry (predominantly the pharmaceutical, agro-alimentary and chemical industries); industries involving farming and the environment; information, documentation and outreach professionals which may include commerce, buisness marketing and management
    General Skills
    • To understand concepts, methods and main results from the various branches of biology, as well as a historical perspective of their development
    • To collect and analyse data, information and relevant results, draw conclusions and write reports on scientific, technological or other problems requiring the use of biological tools
    • To apply both theoretical and practical knowledge acquired and the ability of analysis and abstraction, in defining and approaching problems and finding solutions to them in both an academic and a professional context
    • To communicate, in writing and orally, knowledge, procedures, results and ideas in Biology to specialist and non-specialist audiences
    • To study and learn independently, organising time and resources, new knowledge and techniques in any scientific or technological discipline

    Specific Skills
    • Recognise different levels of organisation in living systems and identify organisms
    • Recognise and identify the most important geological forms, materials and structures
    • Identify paleontological evidence
    • Obtain, handle, conserve and observe specimens

    • Carry out production and optimisation studies on animals and plants
    • Analyse and understand the behaviour of living creatures
    • Sample, characterise and manage populations and communities
    • Design models of biological processes
    • Describe, analyse, evaluate and plan the physical environment
    • Study environmental impact and diagnose and find solutions for environmental problems
    • Manage, conserve and restore populations and ecosystems
    • Develop and implement bio-control techniques
    • Compile information, design experiments and analyse the results
    • Direct, write and implement projects related to Biology
    • Develop and implement management systems related to Biology
    • Thematic mapping
    • Perform functional tests, determine and interpret vital parameters
    • Interpret, plan and design the territory and landscape
    • Soil sampling, interpretation and recognition as constituent entities of terrestrial ecosystems
    • Perform services and processes related to Biology
    • Work safely in the laboratory

Students must demonstrate curiosity and the observational skills needed to understand problems relating to nature, the ability to work as part of a team, the ability to interpret data, identify connections and work across disciplines, and also show perseverance, enthusiasm, and dedication to this vast scientific field
