To nurture the development of human personnel who can contribute to the conservation of biodiversity and the sustainable use of bio resources.


This course features a "common curriculum" where students learn about recent developments in the biological sciences and about pathways to becoming specialists and researchers. Students also take “core courses” where they learn about taxonomy centered on zoology and a mathematical approach to the environmental conditions and biological phenomena surrounding them. Following the acquisition of this kind of broad-based expert knowledge, they move on to more specialized tracks such as the “Life Sciences track,” where they learn about the individual physiologies of animals as well as their reproductive mechanisms, or the “Natural Ecosystems track” where they learn about the distribution, movements, evolution and dynamism of animal groups. Here, they have the opportunity to also apply the theories they learn in the classroom. We aim to nurture the development of researchers and specialists who can assertively contribute to the conservation of biodiversity and the sustainable use of bioresources.
