Biology is a core science in society. The Bachelor's Degree Programme in Biological Sciences covers all the main aspects of life sciences and their applications aimed at - without limitation - the safeguard of the environment and human health, as well as the quality control of organic production. The Bachelor's Degree Programme in Biological Sciences provides a solid theoretical and experimental basis on these topics thanks to teaching activities including lectures, laboratory exercises and an internship to be carried out in university research laboratories or in companies and institutions affiliated with the University.

Course content

The Bachelor's Degree Programme in Biological Sciences provides for step-by-step learning. The first year includes the basic subjects necessary to understand and analyse biological phenomena. Afterwards, teachings deal with biological systems and phenomena of increasing complexity, starting from molecules, cells and tissues, then the organism, populations and communities, up to ecosystems. The programme also deals with aspects applicable to areas including conservation and management of natural heritage and biodiversity, and the protection of human health. Experimental activities are planned for the preparation of the degree thesis and are carried out in the university laboratories or in external companies and institutions. The training activities are enriched with free-choice teachings that enable students to further explore topics of interest.

Career options

Bachelor's graduates will acquire theoretical, methodological and experimental skills concerning the structure, development and functions of the living organisms and their interactions with the environment. The experience gained in the laboratories will enable them to work in the following areas: quality control of organic production, biological monitoring, management and protection of ecosystems, product and chemical analysis, nutritional consultancy, biological control in the agri- food sector and public health. Bachelor's graduates may also complete their training with a Master's Degree Programme and take the State Examination for the practice of the profession of Junior Biologist (Presidential Decree no. 328 of 5 June 2001). The Degree Programme in Biotechnologies enable students to enrol in the Master's Degree Programme in Medical Biotechnologies, Industrial Biotechnologies, and Experimental and Applied Biology.
