The bachelor in Biology is a three years program with an admission limit set to 165 enrolled students (5 places reserved to non EC students). The program shares 62 credits (ECTS) with the bachelor in Molecolar Biology. The program is organized in semesters, attendance to the courses is mandatory (detailed in the "Regolamento Didattico del Corso di Studi").
Because life sciences are constantly expanding, both for the aspects related to research and for the expertise required in different areas. The Degree in Biology obtained the certificate of quality certification from the Coordination of Italian University Biologists (CBUI), which certifies the adequacy of the educational offer with respect to scientific and professional fields.
Because choosing the Bachelor in Biology, you will acquire knowledge and methodological skills on the different levels of the biological organization, without neglecting the genetic-molecular, cellular and functional aspects. At the end you will obtain a solid preparation that will will allow you to access to different master degrees in biological and related fields.
Because the Degree in Biology is a balanced educational path, through the study of the complexity of forms and functions of the biological world, including molecular aspects, evolutionary dynamics and interactions between organisms and environment, You will build up a cultural background with an integrated vision of biological processes that is difficult to obtain with other three-year degrees.
Because starting from a basic, wide-ranging educational path, you can customize your study plan in order to cover your intersest in biology.
What you are going to study
The bachelor includes 18 courses with grades, 14 of which include exercises and / or laboratories. In addition it includes 3 didactic activities with suitability tests (English language, level B2; informatics and bioinformatics; final exam) and a training internship, for a total of 180 credits (ECTS).
In the first year, you will follow classes with mathematical, physical and chemical contents, necessary to understand biological processes and mechanisms. Furthermore, an introductory course to biology will introduce you to the characteristics and organization of living beings, the foundations of evolutionary theory, the methods for biological classification.
In the second year, the focus of the courses will be on the molecular, genetic and cellular aspects and on the complexity of the forms of the biological systems.
With this knowledge, in the third year of study, the physiological, developmental, evolutionary and ecological aspects will be presented.
