The curriculum consists of foundation courses in basic sciences and Microbiology, followed by a flexible choice of electives to meet the needs of students preparing for health professions, graduate studies and careers in research and the industrial applications of Biology. Students learn through a combination of lectures, laboratory and seminar courses. Required core courses in the sciences include all fields of Zoology and Botany, Microbiology: General Microbiology, Medical Microbiology, Chemistry: General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biophysics, Biostatistics and other Life Science courses: Genetics, Cell Biology, Molecular Biology, Physiology, Hematology, Tumor Biology and Antibiotics. To achieve the practical sessions of these subjects, the Department has fully equipped specialized laboratories. With a degree in Biology, graduates will be well prepared to undertake graduate studies in any of the life sciences and Biotechnology or Genetics. Graduates will be ideally suited for employment in biotechnology, pharmaceutics, medical and forensic sciences, biological research institutes, hospital laboratories, hospital supply companies, or the food industry, in addition to their ability to be teachers of Biology.
