The faculty was founded in 1946, at the same time as the State University of Moldova. Its formation is associated to the names of famous scientists such as academician N. Dimo ​​and professors V. Andreev and I. Vul. Over the years, the faculty has trained over 6,000 young specialists, including ones from many other countries. One of the Faculty of Biology and Soil Science’s main priorities is the involvement of students in the research activity. As part of the study programs, mandatory and optional theoretical courses allow students to be trained in the scientific research carried out in the “Științe ale vieții” Research Center.

Of great worth to the faculty is the Museum of Natural Sciences, which includes the sections of Geology, Plant Sciences, Botany, and Zoology, that is holding an impressive number of exhibits from all over the world. Graduates have the opportunity to work in different fields of the national economy, in the divisions of the Ministry of Agriculture, Regional Development and Environment, in the research institutions of the Academy of Science of Moldova, in production facilities in the field of natural sciences, etc., but also as biology or geography teachers in undergraduate and university education institutions.
