    Programme Description

    The objective of this bachelor´s degree is to allow students to acquire solid scientific knowledge for a real understanding of the living things. This also involves the teaching of biology and the general organisation of the animal and vegetable kingdoms as well as the functioning of organisms, from the molecular level to integrated biological systems. Teaching is designed to combine fundamental concepts and teaching of methodological tools. As often as possible, topical issues in research and its applications are presented. Objectives also include demonstrating that an understanding of the living world is done through a multidisciplinary approach, giving students the tools and concepts that will allow them to make diagnostic evaluations and establish corrective measures in all the fields of biology and developing critical analysis of the concerns of society in relation to biology (cloning, GMOs, health, the environment).
