In this work, the design of two specific courses by activities with the objective of developing generic competences by students is presented. Among these, oral and written communication and specific competences of Environmental Parasitology and Environmental Organic Chemistry are considered. All this has been done in the new objectives and requirements of the European Higher Education Área (EHEA). In this context, the EHEA proposes to support the personal development of the students to make them competent in their future professional careers and in their life as active citizens. This paper presents the experience of several years of work with students of Environmental Sciences at the University of Almería (Spain). The main conclusión is that working generic competences require reducing the theoretical contents of the courses, although the new design has allowed student to get more interested an involved in the courses, and to get competences that did not have before.
