Faculty of Biology
The present Faculty of Biology was established in 1974, making it a pioneering institution in
Spain. It first appeared as a result of increasing knowledge in the field of life sciences at a
time of relentless diversification. Now, within a social context of expansion and growing
intercommunication, and considering the endless restructuring of higher education, we recognize the
need for continual change and progress.
Being particularly conscious of this, the Faculty of Biology is more than prepared to meet the challenge. Also, at over one hundred years old, we are experiencing something of a renaissance as a broadly applicable academic field that encompasses such fascinating areas of current concern as environmentalism and biotechnologies. The Faculty of Biology effectively offers everyone the chance to get involved.
