Objectives of Programme's Learning Outcomes

  • Acquire, understand and use knowledge in the fields of biology and other fields
    • Understand the fundamentals of chemistry (including organic chemistry) and general physics both applied to biology
    • Understand and use mathematical tools and basic statistics to describe and understand biological concepts
    • Demonstrate an understanding of the general principles of life to understand questions and solve situations related to biology
    • Integrate knowledge from other fields of knowledge with biology (earth science, physics, chemistry, mathematics), in a critical way, to foster an interdisciplinary approach
    • Synthesise and summarise, in a critical way, information from scientific literature in different forms (textual, numerical, verbal and graphic)
  • Solve issues relevant to biology
    • Have developed practical skills in the various fields of biology through practical sessions in the laboratory and in the field, during which they have worked individually or in groups
    • Make accurate observations in the context of activities in the field and in the laboratory
    • Grasp and use the usual methods the conservation of live materials
    • Analyse and interpret, in an appropriate way, biological data collected in natura, through dissection or based on an experimental protocol in the laboratory
  • Apply a scientific approach and critical thinking
    • Understand and apply the basic principles of reasoning (obtaining data, analysis, synthesis, comparison, rule of three, syllogism, analogy, etc.)
    • Work with efficiency / accuracy / precision
    • Present a hypothesis and hypothetical-deductive reasoning
    • Develop critical thinking, test and monitor conclusions understanding the domain of validity, and explore alternative hypotheses
    • Manage doubt and uncertainty
  • Communicate effectively and appropriately in French and English
    • Understand and summarise articles, websites and other scientific works in French and English
    • Communicate in French, orally and in writing, the results of experiments and observations by constructing and using graphs and tables
