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 interrelations 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 about 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 or Pharmaceutical Chemistry

Our Biology program has a syllabus structured in ten academic semesters, integrated by four areas of training: 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.

According to the study approach, we offer you practice or internship options in our laboratories or in institutions in agreement with the University, within the country or abroad.
