Your futur job

Biologists apply their knowledge and know-how, which are very versatile, in very different sectors: in scientific, fundamental or applied research in research institutes or private laboratories, in expertise and resource management in the private or public sector, in education, training and communication.

Your programme

The knowledge to be acquired is at two levels of complexity of living organisms: "biochemistry, molecular and cellular biology" on the one hand, and "biology of organisms and ecology" on the other hand, identified by two options.
