Biology

Biology is the scientific study of growth, function, origin, and evolution of organisms and life and covers a great number of fields including ecology, ecosystems, genetics, anatomy, physiology, cells, botany, animals and plants. Many Bachelor in Biology programs are aimed at being pre-professional, such as pre-medicine, pre-dentistry, pre-ecology, or other scientific disciplines.

Through laboratory and coursework, students earning a Bachelor in Biology learn the skills necessary to become biologists or scientists. Some coursework for Bachelor in Biology programs may focus on human biology including physiology, genetics, and anatomy, while others may focus on ecology, such as conservation, environmental management, and biotechnology. With a Bachelor in Biology, graduates have the option of such jobs as laboratory and research work in the public or private sector, health departments, government, working alongside scientists, teaching, or continuing on to post graduate education.

License In Psychomotricity

Université Internationale de Casablanca
Campus Full time 3 years August 2017 Morocco Casablanca

Psychomotricity encompasses all motor functions that are directly or indirectly related to thought, psychology and brain functions. It is a discipline as much as a current of thought which puts forth the connection between the body and the psyche. [+]

Bachelors in Biology. Psychomotricity encompasses all motor functions that are directly or indirectly related to thought, psychology and brain functions. It is a discipline as much as a current of thought which puts forth the connection between the body and the psyche. Psychomotricity is upstream of abstraction, it exists when thought needs the body, and its tonic imprint to conceive and develop. Using various techniques, "psychomotricity" tends to develop harmony between a person's body, affect, and intelligence. Thus by "psychomotricity", we tend body and mind towards an objective of harmony, both internal through serenity and external through adaptation. The psychomotor is a health professional practicing in infants, children, adolescents, adults and the elderly who have difficulty adapting to the world because of disturbed perceptual-motor integration. The psychomotor is therefore addressed to a population of different ages, for prevention, screening, diagnosis and especially therapy. Some of its interventions may also be educational, especially in the context of early childhood. The course of psychomotricity of the International University of Casablanca is a training that is prepared in 3 years of studies, spread over 6 semesters. The system of studies is based on a modular system of education according to the LMD system in force in national higher education and a combination of theory and practice (tutorials, internships in healthcare and school). ADMISSIONS To be a psychomotor, the person must be above all in his / her body and mind, be empathetic, be able to give attention, be attentive to the other, be... [-]

Bachelor of Science in Biology

The Bachelor of Science in Biology degree is the most versatile of all the majors in the Department of Biology, allowing students to tailor their studies to nearly any career path. This rigorous program provides course work and skills that students need to prepare for admission to professional health degree programs and graduate school or careers in highly specialized fields in the natural sciences. It has more extensive mathematics, chemistry, and physics course requirements, leaving less room for students to take biology electives or other courses outside the major than does the Bachelor of Arts in Biology.

B.S. Biology students are expected to specialize in a particular area of study, or "concentration," that most closely matches their anticipated career. Four concentrations are available within this major.... [-]

The Biology program provides insights into living systems from the sub-cellular level to the ecosystem level. The Biology major prepares students for careers in cell and molecular biology, biochemistry, plant and animal biology, genetics, physiology, ecology, and field biology. [+]

The Biology program provides insights into living systems from the sub-cellular level to the ecosystem level. The Biology major prepares students for careers in cell and molecular biology, biochemistry, plant and animal biology, genetics, physiology, ecology, and field biology. A curriculum can be developed to prepare for medical, dental, veterinary, agriculture, or other professional schools, or for graduate study. The major also establishes a foundation for interdisciplinary careers in biological resources management, human biology, nutritional sciences, and science communications (technical writing, journalism, and nature interpretation). Biology graduates are employed in industry (pharmaceuticals, paper making, food processing, hospitals and clinics, agriculture, and others); government agencies (Environmental Protection Agency, Food and Drug Administration, Fish and Wildlife Service, Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, Department of Agriculture, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources); environmental consulting firms; and educational institutions. About 40 percent of Biology graduates pursue advanced degrees in graduate and professional schools. Biology majors must combine their studies with an interdisciplinary minor. Human Biology is the minor commonly chosen by Biology majors with interests in health sciences or exercise science. Students interested in ecology, biodiversity, and management of biological resources such as wildlife, forests, and fisheries, typically take a minor in Environmental Science. Other interdisciplinary areas that may be useful, depending upon a student's career goals, include Business Administration and Environmental Policy and Planning. Students who prefer a Biology minor (rather than a major), coupled with an interdisciplinary major, might consider majors in Environmental Science or Human Biology. Students in Education who desire... [-]

Environmental Sustainability Major At EMU, you’ll receive a top-notch scientific education thanks to professors who are experts in their fields and our well-rounded, interdisciplinary learning approach. It’s part of what makes EMU a Christian university like no other. Environmental sustainability majors learn to truly grasp the nature of environmental research and issues by taking courses in a variety of disciplines. Biology, sociology and peacebuilding professors work closely together on environmental sustainability courses that weave forward-thinking sustainability practices with issues of international and community development and conservation. At the same time, students get a more in-depth education in one field by choosing a science or a social sustainability track within the environmental sustainability major. Our graduate program in peacebuilding is also an asset to any undergrad in the fields of development and sustainability; dozens of grad-level international scholars flock to EMU each year to study at the Center for Justice and Peacebuilding. And many professors around campus have decades of experience working and living overseas advocating for those in the margins. About Our Environmental Sustainability Major What makes EMU’s environmental sustainability major so unique? Plenty! Our program provides a combination of breadth and depth.
