UNDERGRADUATE STUDIES

Educational Purpose:

The undergraduate curriculum aims the training of scientists able to study the conditions that allow the emergence of life, the laws governing its existence and the parameters that specify its functions in the the five organizational levels: molecules, cells, organisms, populations and ecosystems.

For this purpose, the Undergraduate Curriculum includes a number of courses that cover the wider discipline of Biology and provide to students a high level knowledge of modern topics on: a) Cell Biology and Biophysics, b) Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, c) Botany, d) Genetics and Biotechnology, e) of Zoology and Marine Biology, f) Ecology and Systematics, and g) Animal and Human Physiology.

Conditions of graduation:

To obtain the degree, students must:

Register, attend and successfully examined in a total of thirty five (35) curriculum courses: twenty one (21) compulsory and fourteen (14) out of the thirty one (31) elective courses offered.

Gather a total of at least 171 teaching units (Credits) or 240 credit units of the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) in twenty one (21) compulsory courses, the diploma thesis and in fourteen (14) elective courses. (The teaching and the credit units listed in the following tables)

   

Attend at least eight (8) academic semesters. So even if a student has completed the above mentioned requirements within a shorter period can not become a graduate before completing his studies in eight semesters.

Prepare a diploma thesis during the seventh (7th) and the eighth (8th) semesters, according to Diploma Thesis Regulation. The diploma thesis is compulsory and is equivalent to 15 Teaching Units (Credits) or 34 Credit Units of the European Credit Transfer System - ECTS.
