Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences
The Biological Sciences Major offers quality education which prepares its students for entry into a wide variety of occupations, including professional and advanced research degree programs. The curriculum offers courses that are surprisingly diverse and challenging for a college the size of M.U.I.C. Required courses emphasize the basic principles required for all advanced biological science programs whose content covers every field, from environmental science, population biology and regulatory biology to cell and molecular biology.
The program offers three modules: Biology, Biomedical Science and Biotechnology.
For many Biological Science majors, undergraduate studies constitute the first step in pursuing an advanced degree that may lead to a career in medicine, academia or science. Other career opportunities include technical research for businesses and industries, government agencies (natural resources and health departments), pharmaceutical companies, environmental consultancies and the biotechnology industry.
