Minor in Human Evolution and Paleontology


To enrol in a minor students must have passed a minimum of 90 ECTS credits of the degree they are taking at that moment. Before enrolling, students should have an interview with the coordinator of the minor, in order to choose the subjects that best suit their profile, expectations and priorities.

Students of all UAB bachelor's degrees are welcome to enrol in this minor. The minor has defined a sufficiently broad offer of subjects, taken from the bachelor's degrees in the humanities, sciences and biosciences, with the aim of appealing to the students of these degrees. Students enrolling in the minor will not be able to enrol in any of the basic training or compulsory subjects included in their bachelor's degrees.

Admission criteria

Admission and enrolment on the minor are subject to the regulations of the UAB. If demand is greater than places available, the criterion to be applied is the global average grade of students' academic transcripts.
