    Biology is the first and soundest of life sciences. The interest its study raises is very ancient but it remains up-to-date. Biology claims its place as a 21st century science. A proof of this is the growing demand for education in all areas of biological sciences, more or less specific depending on one´s interests. Different integration levels are studied in Biology, from molecules to ecosystems, always connected to the greatest challenges currently met by mankind, from disease eradication to global change. The licenciate/BSc degree in Biology of Lusófona University has been training biologists since academic year 1999/2000 and was the first to do so in the private higher education system in Portugal. It is currently acknowledged as a high quality training ground, with the competency to prepare its students to face the requirements of professional life in the most diverse areas. We train fully dedicated biologists and this is our commitment.

  • Knowledge, abilities and skills to be acquired

    Knowledge, abilities and skills to be acquired

    The licentiate degree aims to furnish its students with: The ability to manage and conserve living resources; Integrated knowledge concerning ecological and environmental issues; Skills pertaining to the collection and observation of biological data in its natural environment; skills in developing programmes to disseminate and conduct research in experimental science; The ability to develop laboratory work in the field of biochemistry and health sciences; The ability to maintain and manipulate cells and genetically modified organisms; the main techniques pertaining to genetics and molecular biology; Expansion of the ability to interpret and analyze biological data, as well as make use of computing tools during simulation processes; The ability to undertake autonomous research and development studies and projects; The ability to engage in multidisciplinary groups of decision; The ability to carry out the practical implementation of the knowledge acquired in the resolution of problems.
  • Objectives


    In this licentiate degree we aim to receive students that are determined to pursue careers in the various areas of public service where biologists are increasingly called to intervene. We do not intend to train highly specialized technicians that are extremely knowledgeable about one restricted area in Biology but have an exceedingly vague knowledge of the complete background that frames its know-how. We intend to train real biologists. We expect to turn out professionals who will feel at home within the organization of the living world, who have the benefit of firm and well-grounded foundations, and who are fully prepared to pursue their postgraduate studies, as well as establish a direct connection with the labour market.
  • Career Opportunities

    Career Opportunities

    We hope that the foundations obtained by our graduated students will allow them to achieve an activity of higher quality and greater depth. There is a widening array of circumstances where it is becoming imperative to hear the voice and perspective of a biologist. Biology may be the most transversal science area and the professional challenges and opportunities are plenty. Our professional biologists are increasingly integrated in multidisciplinary teams and may provide a great contribution, from basic research to biotechnology, from clinical investigation to teaching, from environment protection and Nature conservation to scientific illustration, from the collaboration in the monumental responsability of bioethics to the analysis of impacts of human activities, from the sensitive issue of resource exploration and measurement of the parameters of the quality of life to bio-entrepreneurship.
  • Future Studies

    Future Studies

    The licentiate degree will permit students to apply for postgraduate studies, specifically 2º cycles (Master's degrees), and afterwards to PhD degrees.
