Bachelor Biological Sciences

Bishop's University
Campus Full time 3 years September 2017 Canada Sherbrooke

Biology is the study of life. We address questions as miniscule as the factors controlling the expression of a single gene, to as wide as changes to an entire ecosystem. [+]

Bachelors in Biology. Biology is the study of life. We address questions as miniscule as the factors controlling the expression of a single gene, to as wide as changes to an entire ecosystem. Biological Sciences We offer Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) and Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degrees in two areas: Health Science, which focuses on human biology, and Biodiversity and Ecology, which concentrates on non-human organisms and their environment. Why study Biology at Bishop’s? Teaching Focus. Our professors have chosen to concentrate on teaching, yet they still maintain research profiles that encourage undergraduate student involvement. See more information about our teaching staff. Small Classes. Small class sizes foster student engagement. Students learn to critically evaluate scientific claims and evidence, and to clearly articulate their thoughts orally and in writing – necessary skills for success in future study or science-related careers. Great Facilities. Our indoor laboratory facilities include molecular biology equipment, aquatic and terrestrial animal rooms, a greenhouse, walk-in-growth chambers, laminar flow hoods, incubators, centrifuges, and research microscopes. Our outdoor facilities include the Peter Curry Marsh, acres of surrounding woodland, canoe access to the Massawippi and St Francis rivers, and easy access to the Johnville Bog. Practical Experience. Our courses have a strong emphasis on labs, and our students learn practical skills useful to their future careers. Students get hands-on experience both in the field and in the laboratory, with a focus on actually “doing” not just observing. We also work hard to foster a capacity for independent thought and work, with ample opportunities to engage in independent research projects that act as excellent training for graduate or professional programs. Community. The entire Biology student population is smaller than a first-year Biology class at a large institution. Professors know students by name, and our Biology and Pre-Medicine clubs promote professor-student interactions outside the classroom. You can visit the Web page of the by going here: Biology club. What Can I Do with a Bishop’s Biology degree? A Bishop’s Biology degree can prepare you for: Advanced study (M.Sc./Ph.D.) in health sciences, environmental studies, or biological/life sciences Professional programs such as education, medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, or physiotherapy Employment in fields as diverse as biotechnology, environmental assessment, and wildlife management Student Club The Biology Club is the official social club for students enrolled in the Biological Sciences. The club is also open to students of other departments who have an interest in biology. Run by the students with help from the departmental technician, Ben Hobson, and various faculty, the club is dedicated to helping students enjoy themselves throughout their time in the department. The club facilitates access to supplemental training that students might otherwise not receive in their academic program. Held every semester, the wine and cheese celebrations are great ice-breakers for new students and also give upper year students the chance to catch up with old friends. Other activities organized by the club include camping and hiking trips, first aid courses, firearm safety courses, and golf tournaments. Activities may change from year to year depending on the interests of the students. In addition to these fun events, the club also holds fundraisers for several charities such as the World Wildlife Fund of Canada. Courses & Programs Incoming Biology students choose between two degrees: the Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) and the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.). They also must choose between two concentrations: Health Sciences, and Biodiversity and Ecology. Upper-year B.Sc. students also have the opportunity to transfer into the Honours program in their final year if they meet certain requirements. What is the difference between the B.Sc. and a B.A.? The B.Sc. degree requires a strong grounding in the core sciences (math, physics, and chemistry). The B.Sc. is the best option if you intend to apply to graduate (M.Sc. or Ph.D.) or professional (e.g. medicine or physiotherapy) programs. Students with a strong interest in biology but not a strong grounding in the basic sciences thrive in the B.A. Biology program. The B.A is much more flexible than the B.Sc., and many students pair it with a second B.A. major. For example, a student interested in governmental health policy might choose a B.A. in Biology (Health Science) and a B.A. in Political Science, whereas an environmentally-oriented student might pair a B.A. Biology (Biodiversity and Ecology) with a B.A. in Environmental Studies. What is the difference between Health Sciences and Biodiversity and Ecology? Health Science prepares students for graduate school in biomedical fields such as cell biology or physiology, and is usually the choice of students hoping to enter medicine, dentistry, or other health-related professional programs. Many of these students also enroll in the Pre-Medicine program. Students interested in wildlife biology, ecology, zoology, plant science, and/or the environment should choose the Biodiversity and Ecology concentration. This degree prepares students for employment or graduate studies in these varied environmental and organismal fields. What is a B.Sc. Honours Degree? The Biology Honours B.Sc. prepares the student for graduate work in either the Life Sciences or the fields of Biodiversity and Ecology. Some professional schools also prefer that students have an Honours degree prior to entry. Honours students plan, execute, and report the findings of an independent research project conducted under the guidance of one or more faculty members. They also take additional Biology courses in the areas of experimental design and scientific writing (and correspondingly fewer electives). Students apply for entry into this program in their U3 year (i.e. the year prior to their graduating year). Entry into the program is based on marks and the availability of an appropriate faculty supervisor. See the links below for more details about Honours. What are the Required and Optional Courses for Each Program? All Biology programs have a central core of courses that all students must take to graduate, plus a list of optional and required courses specific to their own concentration. All Biology students will start with a fixed series of core courses. After this, each student will then have a series “required concentration courses” that each student enrolled in that particular concentration must also take. Each concentration then has a further list of options from which students in that concentration can select so as to meet their requirement of “concentration options”. Admission process Create a GoBishops account Once logged in, click on “Apply” to access the online application form. Complete the application form and submit it electronically.

Earning acceptance into the graduate school of your choice feels good. Attending that graduate school free of charge, while also receiving a stipend, may seem too good to be true. It is true, though, and we have the graduates to prove it. In just the past few years, we've put students into funded Ph.D. programs at prestigious schools like the University of Wisconsin, Michigan Tech University, Rutgers and North Carolina. "I'm really pleased that our graduates with a passion for biology have had incredible success being accepted by some pretty high-powered programs," says Paul Pickhardt, Lakeland's natural sciences division chair. "If you pursue a masters or Ph.D. in biology, and you're applying to good programs, they will pay you to go to school." We can help you get there Whether your goal is to attend graduate school or land a job with your biology bachelor's degree, we will put you in position to succeed. We cover all the academic bases, guiding you through a wide array of classes ranging from genetics to molecular biology to chemistry and physics. Lakeland's signature approach to education involves hands-on teaching and interactive learning. Our biology program is a testament to that, with application-based lab work that breaks the mold. "In our environmental science courses, for example, our students go out in the field and do science as if they were actually professional biologists," says Pickhardt, a 2011 Underkofler Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching award winner. "And across the curriculum, we try to emphasize that our labs aren't cookie-cutter like they are at other places. They're certainly not being taught by a grad student or teaching assistant." Biology at Lakeland From the ponds on our picturesque campus to the jungles of Belize, your biology journey at Lakeland College will provide you with opportunities near and far. Every other May, a group of 10-15 Lakeland students travels to Belize for an interactive tropical biology course that emphasizes investigative research in a tropical rainforest. Students live in a lowland forest for nine days, plus study coral reef ecology on the reefs of Belize for a few days. "If you asked all of the students who have made this trip, I think the response would be unanimous that it's a life-changing experience," says Pickhardt. Recent Grads, Real Careers Listed below are just some of the jobs or graduate school positions Lakeland College biology students from recent graduating classes have landed: Graduate student, Washington University Culinary development scientist, Johnsonville Sausage Graduate assistant, Cartwright Graphics/University Wisconsin-La Crosse Graduate research assistant, Ph.D. program, cellular and molecular biology, University of Wisconsin-Madison Fire controlman, United States Navy Certified industry analyst, Dean's Foods-Verifine Dairy Medical laboratory technician, University of North Carolina Hospitals Health educator, United States Peace Corps Research assistant, Oak Ridge National Lab Graduate research assistant, The Ohio State University [-]

BS Biology (Pre-Med) Major

Toccoa Falls College
Campus Full time 126 hours September 2017 USA Toccoa Falls

The Biology/Chemistry Department at Toccoa Falls College is located in the Clary Science Building and offers essential training in the natural sciences for the liberal arts curriculum taught from a Biblical perspective. [+]

The Biology/Chemistry Department at Toccoa Falls College is located in the Clary Science Building and offers essential training in the natural sciences for the liberal arts curriculum taught from a Biblical perspective, with special emphasis on these areas of study: Biology Major: Every major area of biological study is included in the major courses, along with general and organic chemistry, physics, and biochemistry. Pre-medical: TFC has a strong record of placement of graduates in medical schools, including acceptance of TFC students at Georgia Health Sciences University (MCG), University of Tennessee, and Mercer University. All of the courses required or recommended by medical schools are offered on campus. Pre-nursing: TFC has had many students enter nursing programs, both at the bachelor’s and master’s levels. We have articulation agreements with Brenau and Piedmont University Schools of Nursing and offer all of the courses required to satisfy the requirements for entry into any nursing school in the region. Education Careers: The Science Department works closely with the Teacher Education Department to provide courses that meet the strict requirements of Georgia state certification, both in basic and secondary science education areas. Sustainability Minor: With a developing emphasis on proper use of resources and a desire to better motivate and equip students in a mission setting to think through allocation priorities, TFC has added a sustainability minor that covers ecology, public health in a global setting, and practical exercises. What do I get to do as a Biology major at TFC? – Study and dissect cool animals – Grow your own special germs – Mate fruit flies – Watch your professor set off fire alarms – Build massive molecular models to illustrate structure – Rescue goldfish from insulin shock – Do “streaking” on the TFC campus (bacterial plates) – Analyze classmates’ DNA to see if they have committed a crime No, REALLY, what do I get to do as a Biology major at TFC? – You will get close attention from the Biology professors. Classes vary from 5-30 students, and most labs have 8-10 students. Unlike larger schools, lab assistants are not used, so that one-on-one contact with the professor is increased. – For students who need help negotiating the complicated requirements of pre-med, pre-nursing, or teacher education, a strong effort is made to provide needed academic counseling and advice by the science professors. – Close association with the teaching staff also translates into opportunities for medical mission work, as well as help and references for off-campus research opportunities. – Science teachers at TFC include a Ph.D. with a purely academic background, a Ph.D. with an industrial background, and an M.D. with 25 years of clinical background and a year of seminary training. – The varied background, training, experience, and philosophies of the science professors enable graduates from the science program here to critically evaluate differing viewpoints in the world of science, a world that has become increasingly varied. – The “bottom line” for all of this is the opportunity presented to students, both majors and non-majors, to develop an intentional integration of faith and learning in the natural sciences, with applications in practical areas including bioethics, origins, and apologetics. J.V. (2010): The most appealing aspect of the Biology Department at Toccoa Falls is the accessibility of the faculty. As a science major at TFC, you will have the rare opportunity to sit down with professors and discuss anything from organic chemistry to medical school admissions to spirituality. Not only are they generally supportive of your academic and career goals, but they are actively involved in making you into the student God would have you to be. Another reason I would choose biology again if I could go back is because of the variety of places the degree can take you, especially in the current job market. While some majors offer only intellectual development, biology offers rigorous intellectual development while also opening doors into health care, biotechnology, and graduate school, to name a few.
