Bachelor of Science in Biology
The Bachelor of Science in Biology [BSc. (Biology)] degree programs are designed to produce graduates for biology with basic knowledge and skills in biological sciences. The program provides opportunities for better understanding of biological sciences for effective application of acquired knowledge and skills in related fields including basic and applied research relevant to biology. The programs are aimed at addressing biology related real life situations.
The Bachelor of Science in Biology (BSc. (Biology) degree programme is designed to provide opportunities for better understanding of biological sciences for effective application of acquired knowledge and skills in education, industry and medical related fields including basic and applied research. The BSc. Biology degree programme has two specializations:
- BSc. Biology- Ecology and Conservation Biology,
- BSc. Biology- Molecular Biology and Genetics.
BSc. Biology- Ecology and Conservation Biology
The BSc. Biology- Ecology and Conservation Biology will provide students with knowledge and experience of the processes that determine the distribution and abundance of different species, and how species interact with each other and their environment. Ecology and conservation biology is of fundamental importance for our wellbeing and prosperity. Ecology and conservation biology affect the way we produce food, maintain our air and water, and also how we sustain biodiversity amid climate change. As we see populations continue to grow, human activities are transforming the planet and threatening biodiversity, it is important that we understand the ecological processes that underpin these challenges and how we can use this knowledge to manage and conserve biodiversity in a rapidly changing world.
BSc. Biology - Molecular Biology and Genetics
BSc. Biology – Molecular Biology and Genetics focuses on the principles of the composition and interactions of cellular molecules and their applications to fundamental phenomena in biological sciences. It examines the structure, synthesis and function of nucleic acids and proteins, as well as the physicochemical techniques necessary in determining the macromolecular structure, the kinetics and mechanism of enzyme action, the genetics of bacteria and their viruses, and the genetic code. It also considers the importance of precise quantitative analysis in biochemistry and biophysics, the architecture and function of biological molecules, and the unique mechanisms that regulate the cell’s biological activity
