Ecology is the science that studies the relationships between organisms and their environment. It considers the diversity, distribution and abundance of living beings, in terms of interactions with biotic and abiotic elements. It seeks to understand the dynamics of ecosystems.

Our Ecology program is based on scientific, technical and humanistic training, related to the study, planning, research, management, conservation, advising, auditing and management of natural resources and the environmental conditions of ecosystems in order to contribute to the processes of social transformation.

The professionals of Ecology of CES University base their activity on the foundations of the Colombian Environmental Policy, within an interdisciplinary dynamic.

You have the possibility of carrying out a double program with Biology or Pharmaceutical Chemistry

We have a structured curriculum in five areas of knowledge: Ecology, Basic Sciences, Knowledge Management, Socio-humanistics and Management. We offer various didactic and pedagogical strategies, such as laboratory and field practices, internships, magazine clubs and seminars, written works, workshops and master classes, among others.

Basic sciences and research are the basis for understanding biological phenomena and the relationships between organisms and the environment, enhancing capacities to know, value, conserve and take advantage of biodiversity.

The Human Sciences and the Management area form and motivate the Ecologist to view and project their work through research and innovation. This, added to his academic qualification, allows him to be an integral person, committed to society and the environment.
