AddToAny buttons: 

The number of biology-related degrees offered at Catalan universities has doubled for the 2009-2010 school year. Last year, three undergraduate degrees in this field were offered; starting in September, there will be 7 degrees to choose from. No other field has seen such large growth.

Starting in September, students will be able to study undergraduate degrees in Biology, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Genetics, Biomedical Sciences, Microbiology and Environmental Biology. The Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) alone will offer degrees in all these specializations, making it the only Spanish university to offer Genetics, Microbiology and Molecular Biology.

So far, according to La Vanguardia (21/7/09), the new degrees have been well received by students, the most popular being the Biomedical Sciences degree at the Universitat de Barcelona (UB), with 254 registered students; the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya’s Biomedical Engineering degree, with 571; and the UAB’s degree in Genetics, with 156.

These degrees already exist at American universities, like Berkeley, and European universities, like Imperial College in London and the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm.
