Qualified registration: Resolution 14361 of December 11, 2019

Biology is the science that studies life in all its dimensions: man, animals, plants and microorganisms. It analyzes its functional and structural principles, molecular composition, evolutionary history, genetic variability, reproduction and development, as well as the interrelationships between organisms and the environment that surrounds them, in order to establish hypotheses and laws that allow us to know, conserve and take advantage of natural resources.

Our biologists are professionals dedicated to the study of life, with high academic and scientific standards, sensitive, passionate about what they do, socially committed and knowledgeable of the basic and applied fundamentals of biology, with skills in different techniques and methodologies.

You have the possibility of carrying out a double program with Ecology The Pharmaceutical Chemistry

Our Biology program has a study plan structured in nine academic semesters, made up of four training areas: basic sciences, research, socio-humanities and entrepreneurship. It also has four emphases: biodiversity and conservation, animal and plant biotechnology, genetics, cellular and molecular biology and urban ecology, according to the interests of each student.

Depending on the study approach, we offer you options for internships or internships in our laboratories or in institutions in agreement with the University, within the country or abroad.
