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.
