Biology is an integral science of which the development of humanity depends, both for its impact on thought and what it represents for the wellbeing and health of the population, the environment, the economy and the natural resources.

All aspects of life require an integral reasoning which can take into consideration each and every one of the factors involved and which in many cases interact. The UAB Bachelor's Degree in Biology provides solid training in the different subjects making up this branch of science in constant evolution, by combining two levels of knowledge: a general level with an integral and multidisciplinary approach and a second hands-on applied level which prepares you for a variety of future career options.
