Main focus

The general objective of this degree programme is to train professionals so that they will possess basic knowledge and training that allows them to identify and analyse new problems in Biology and formulate strategies to solve them. Graduates with this degree will be able to perform their professional activity in biomedical contexts. This activity is related to research and development, the optimisation of vegetable and animal resources, and the dissemination of biological topics in the administration, public organisations, and private companies. Graduates will also be qualified to teach in secondary schools and universities.

Competences

1. Identify the organisational levels of living entities from a structural (molecular, cellular, organic) and functional perspective and understand their relations with the environment and with other organisms, as well as their responses to situations of environmental impact.
2. Collect information on biological topics, analyse and interpret this information, draw conclusions, and make critical judgements, including (when necessary) a reflection on related social and/or ethical aspects of the topic.
3. Write a biology report or design a biology project, either individually or in a group, applying the knowledge acquired in the degree programme to a professional context, and finally present a reasoned justification of the underlying ideas.
4. Use experimental devices, including scientific and computer tools, which facilitate problem-solving in biology as well as in professional work contexts.
5. Have the motivation to carry out innovative entrepreneurial activities that address current issues (research and development, environment, biomedicine, bioproduction, etc.).
6. Clearly communicate biology-related knowledge, methodologies, ideas, problems, and solutions to a wide range of specialised and non-specialised audiences.
