Brief description of the degree course
Characteristics and objectives
The course offers as an ideal continuation of the first level courses of the class "Science and technology for the environment and nature", by completing the naturalistic training. It provides the student with: i) advanced skills in the system analysis of the natural environment, in all its biotic and abiotic components, and their interactions; ii) a mastery of the scientific method, complemented by specific knowledge for conducting scientific research in the field of natural sciences; iii) a thorough knowledge of the modern instrumentation for data acquisition and statistical and computer techniques for data analysis and storage; iv) principles and techniques of geological, floristic and fauna investigation, methods for setting up environmental impact assessments and techniques of remote sensing and geomorphological survey.
The student also acquires principles of modern naturalistic museology and the fundamental concepts of modern teaching of natural sciences. All this is in combination with a high level scientific and practical preparation.

Occupational opportunities
Life science specialists, biologists, botanists and zoologists can i) carry out natural resource census activities, ii) design and implement monitoring plans, impact assessment, recovery and management of natural or semi-natural environments, iii) draft thematic charts (either, biological or abiological), iv) organize and direct of scientific museums, aquaria, botanical gardens and natural parks, v) perform activities related to naturalistic and environmental education, such as the realization of educational materials - including multimedia support - for schools, universities, museums, parks, aquaria and botanical gardens, the design and management of naturalistic itineraries, the dissemination of environmental and naturalistic knowledge.
