In 1866, the University of Bucharest established the Faculty of Sciences, comprising two departments: the Department of Mathematical and Physical Sciences and the Department of Physical and Natural Sciences. Natural History functioned within the second department that was subsequently divided into three departments: Zoology, Botany and Physiology. In the beginning, the studies lasted only three years; it has since increased to four years.
In order to carry out high-performance activities, the Faculty of Biology has specialized laboratories with modern equipment, as well as a rich book fund. The knowledge received in classrooms and laboratories is completed by interesting, practical applications performed in the middle of nature every year - at the end of each semester.
The faculty has bilateral agreements offering undergraduate and post-graduate students the opportunity to carry out practice and research terms in renowned foreign universities and institutions.
