Molecular Biology

A Bachelor's degree is a degree awarded by universities and colleges. In order to earn a bachelor's degree, you must complete the necessary courses that may last three to seven years depending on your institution of enrollment.

A BSc in Molecular Biology is focused on the understanding of biological processes and interaction of biological molecules at the cellular level. Students will learn about nucleic acids and proteins, their structure, formation and function. Graduates will be able to pursue careers in drug development, environmental monitoring and forensic science.

Education in the United States is mainly provided by the public sector, with control and funding coming from three levels: state, local, and federal, in that order. The common requirements to study at a higher education level in United States will include your admissions essay (also known as the statement of purpose or personal statement), transcript of records, recommendation/reference letters, language tests

Commonly referred to as the “Hawkeye state” or “America’s heartland” owed to its positioning, the state of Iowa has been ranked as one of the safest places to live time and again. With three major public universities and a host of numerous private institutions and colleges, the state can boast of having a reputable education system.

Bachelors in Molecular Biology in Iowa in USA. Biology Major Why study Biology? Whether you dream of being a medical/health sciences professional, working hands-on in the clinic or industry labs, or pursuing biology research towards new discoveries, the UIU Biology major prepares you to go as far as possible. The biology major at UIU is unique in the capstone research experience, in which students apply the concepts they have learned by investigating a topic of their choosing with a faculty mentor. Students design, perform, and present their research to others, practicing skills that are valued highly by employers and graduate/professional schools. This experience helps make our students competitive within their field, and confident in their abilities and applied knowledge. Courses The biology major offers a series of core courses structured around classes that provide the foundation of the biological studies. From there, the biology major has emphases that allow you to tailor your studies to your individual career goals and provide you with “Choice Content.” Emphasis areas Pre-professional emphasis: This emphasis prepares you for entrance into professional programs such as medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, optometry, chiropractic, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and veterinary medicine programs. Visit our webpages for pre-professional students for more information and a comparison of courses commonly required by professional programs. Medical Lab Sciences emphasis: Clinical or medical laboratory technicians collect and analyze samples to aid in the diagnosis and appropriate treatment of patients with disease. This emphasis prepares you for entrance into programs certified by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS). For example, UIU graduates of clinical laboratory sciences have furthered their careers through the Medical Laboratory Science Program at the Mayo Clinic. General emphasis: The possibilities are wide and varied for an individual with a general biology major! This emphasis prepares you for a career in the biological sciences, plant or animal care and research, for positions in biological industry, and for entrance into graduate programs in biology. Skills in biology can also be combined with skills in art (medical illustration, molecular modeling), math (biostatistics, epidemiology), law (biotechnology patents), and public health (food safety, drug testing and quality control) for even wider career paths. Chiropractic emphasis: The Chiropractic emphasis is a 3+1 articulation with Palmer, Logan University and Northwestern Chiropractic Colleges, where the first year at the Chiropractic program is used to complete the requirements for the biology major at Upper Iowa University. Career opportunities Upper Iowa students graduating with a biology major are prepared to pursue a wide range of opportunities, including the following examples: Professional programs such as medical, dental, optometry, podiatry, physical therapy, chiropractic, accelerated nursing, and veterinary schools (Biology—Pre-professional emphasis) Medical laboratory science training at programs and locations such as the Mayo Clinic; (Biology—Medical Laboratory Science emphasis) Graduate programs in the biological sciences (Biology—General emphasis) Employment in public health such as food safety, drug testing and quality control (Biology-General or Medical Laboratory Science emphases) Employment in businesses that produce and sell medical equipment and pharmaceuticals (Medical Science emphases) Over the last eight years, biology major graduates pursuing graduate/professional school or biology-related jobs have had a 90% placement rate. Biology is offered at the following Upper Iowa University location: Residential Fayette campus [-]

Bachelor in Biology Biology students at Waldorf College are trained in the methods of scientific inquiry as they also are grounded in the principles of biology. We accomplish this through traditional classroom work, laboratories and field trips, and through supporting experiences, such as internships, summer assistantships, and research. Why Study Biology? Biology is a story of survival. Biologists study living systems and ask questions about life, such as: What environmental and physiological factors affect the distribution and abundance of organisms on the earth? How do cells change as they age, and how does this affect the whole organism? How can genetics help answer questions about disease, adaptation, behavior, or extinction? How do matter and energy flow through ecosystems, and how is this flow being affected by human activities? To answer these and other questions, the Biology Department prepares students for a variety of professions and careers. All students enrolling in biology will begin working toward a B.A. degree, a program that gives students a strong preparation in biology with supporting courses in mathematics, chemistry, and physics. It also allows students to combine this program with over 20 credits from other academic departments, a flexibility that allows students to pursue a minor in computers, communications, business, or other programs. Such interdisciplinary biology degrees will greatly strengthen a graduate's marketability in the competitive workplace. The Biology Department is very proud of its track record. Many of our alumni now are physicians, nurses, physical therapists, optometrists, dietitians, veterinarians, biologists, park rangers, or farmers. Elective Concentrations Cell Molecular Conservation Biology Anatomy/Physiology Pre-Professional Curriculum To best prepare students for leadership careers in the biological sciences the Department maintains five general goals for its students: to develop the practice of scientific and critical inquiry; to assist students in understanding and applying scientific principles; to develop investigative and quantitative skills; to train students to operate biological equipment accurately and efficiently; to prepare students for a life of leadership and service. To accomplish these goals, the department offers students a strong curriculum and opportunities outside the classroom to develop their biological skills. All courses are thorough and experiential; students use modern laboratory equipment and practice scientific inquiry while learning a breadth and depth of biological information. Faculty members maintain research programs and strongly encourage students to participate in projects. [-]
