Bachelors in Genetics in North America 2017. The Biology Department at UPEI has a strong tradition of helping people realize their potential through deep consideration of the biological world. A scientific understanding of the plants and animals is, in many ways, its own reward. But it is also a pathway to a large number of exciting and fulfilling career opportunities. A biology program is a common route toward the health professions (human and veterinary medicine, dentistry, physiotherapy, etc.), for which we offer strong pre-professional programs. It can also lead to careers in environmental analysis, biotechnology, laboratory diagnostics, and many other things. Biology graduates also often establish other sorts of careers (lawyer, business professional) for which the knowledge of biology can be a strong personal and professional asset. The strength of our educational programs derive from the strength of our scholarly activity and research. Our faculty hold grants from the Natural Sciences and Research Council of Canada, Canada Foundation for Innovation, Atlantic Innovation Foundation, Canadian Institutes of Health Research, and Prince Edward Island Health Research Institute, among others. Our faculty have research programs in neurobiology, arctic insect ecology, cancer cell biology, watershed ecology, pollination biology, coastal habitat ecology, animal habitat fragmentation, heart and stroke physiology, aquatic toxicology, plant ecological genetics, among others. Dr. Marva Sweeney-Nixon UPEI Department of Biology Honours The Honours program in Biology is designed to provide research experience at the undergraduate level within the BSc program. It is available to students with a strong academic background who intend... [-]

BSc in Integrated Human Biology

Bastyr University
Campus Full time 2 years September 2017 USA Kenmore San Diego + 1 more

The Bachelor of Science with a Major in Integrated Human Biology serves as excellent preparation for a career as a 21st-century health practitioner or biomedical researcher. [+]

The Bachelor of Science with a Major in Integrated Human Biology serves as excellent preparation for a career as a 21st-century health practitioner or biomedical researcher. This fully accredited undergraduate degree equips students with the competencies necessary to pursue a range of professional degrees (naturopathic doctor, medical doctor, dentist, pharmacist), allied health degrees (physician's assistant, nurse, physical therapist) or graduate studies in biological sciences. With a focus on hands-on scientific research, this progressive program draws connections among physiology, anatomy, cell biology, biochemistry and genetics — rather than teaching each subject individually. This distinct approach helps students unravel the complexities of human biology and develop a unified understanding of the structure and function of the body. In this way, students acquire a strong foundation in biological science and develop critical thinking skills crucial for careers in biology and health. New students must have completed 90 college credits to enter. The program allows community college students to complete a degree and also welcomes transfer students from traditional four-year colleges. Program Features Excellence in teaching and mentoring — Small class sizes, an introductory seminar the first quarter, and faculty mentorship throughout the program all foster a supportive learning environment, encourage collaborative learning and develop communication skills. Emphasis on scientific research skills — Students participate in hands-on, inquiry-based labs and must complete a research proposal. Students also complete an original research project. Additional research opportunities are available through the Bastyr University Research Institute. Multidisciplinary electives — Students may take elective coursework in psychology, nutrition,... [-]
