Activities The aim of the Department of Biology is to provide our students with the best possible teaching programmes in order to instil a sound theoretical and practical background to the subject as well as provide them with the necessary skills which would enable them to effectively contribute towards Malta's changing needs and requirements. Moreover, through its research programmes, the Department is trying to make a direct contribution to the sustainable management of our natural resources, and national economic development. Each member of staff is actively involved in research and consultancy work. This ensures that they remain academically adjourned within their respective fields of interest. Our students actively participate in staff research programmes. This has greatly helped their academic preparation as well as their professional skills, and many of our graduates are presently employed in key positions within the private and public sectors.
