2 years in Madrid + 2 years in St. Louis, Missouri, USA.
SLU-Madrid and the Department of Biology at SLU-St. Louis offer a Bachelor of Arts in Biological Science and five specialized Bachelor of Science concentrations:
1) Biological Science
2) Biological Chemical and Molecular Biology
3) Cell Biology and Physiology
4) Ecology, Evolution and Conservation

You can complete the first two years of your biology degree on the Madrid Campus before transferring to the St. Louis Campus for the final two years. The academic curriculum on the two campuses is completely integrated.
In Madrid, you will work with faculty members from across the globe who are committed to excellent teaching, mentoring and scholarship. Beyond the classroom and laboratories, you will be part of an international community of students who come from as many as 65 different countries. You’ll develop your language skills, oral and written communication skills, problem-solving abilities and intercultural awareness.
Upon transfer to the St. Louis Campus, you will interact with the Missouri Botanical Garden, the St. Louis Zoological Park, the Saint Louis University School of Medicine, the Pediatric Research Institute and Cardinal Glennon Hospital.
In keeping with the Jesuit tradition of promoting the development of the whole person, the biology programs - like our other natural science programs - requires the Core Curriculum of College of Arts and Sciences. This Core provides a framework for acquiring a broad foundation of knowledge in the humanities, natural sciences and social sciences. At the same time, the Core fosters intellectual inquiry, ethical decision-making, and effective communication across the disciplines.
