Bachelor Biological Sciences

Bishop's University
Campus 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. [+]

Best Part time Bachelors in Biology 2017. 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”.

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. All students learn the interdisciplinary nature of environmental research and issues by taking courses in a variety of disciplines. At the same time, students get a more in-depth education in one area by choosing a science or a social sustainability track within the environmental sustainability major. Key Distinctives of Our Program An interdisciplinary approach to understanding contemporary issues such as local hydrofracking, wilderness preservation. We study modern concerns like global warming from both scientific and social perspectives. Job-related experience in a wide variety of organizations through a required practicum, or internship. Practical experiences in private businesses, farms, and government agencies are an important step in developing a career in environmental sustainability. Research opportunities on student-faculty collaborative projects, such as a grant-funded steam restoration project in a local mountain community. EMU cross-cultural study abroad trips that focus on sustainability issues, like recent trips to New Zealand, Bolivia and the Galapagos, and Kenya. Environmental science concentration The environmental science concentration focuses on the biological and chemical aspects of environmental sustainability. Solid and challenging coursework in natural sciences prepares students to work on such issues as biodiversity and loss of species, pollution and toxicology, land use and degradation, waste management, resource depletion and energy consumption, climate change, and alternative agriculture. Students focus on “traditional” environmental science courses from the disciplines of ecology, chemistry and physiology, but also learn the interdisciplinary nature of environmental research and issues while working with sociology, economics, and development professors. Classes address local and global sustainability issues and include hands-on research projects. During a required internship, students work with a local environmental organization such as Shenandoah National Park, The Nature Conservancy or the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality. Environmental and social sustainability concentration The environmental and social sustainability concentration focuses on the social, economic, and political aspects of environmental sustainability. Challenging coursework in various social sciences prepares students to work on such issues as environmental advocacy, conservation and sustainable development, land use and degradation, environmental education and agricultural extension, climate change, waste management, and alternative energy. This track combines traditional environmental science coursework with applied sociology courses that emphasize international and community development and conservation. You’ll have hands-on opportunities to work in areas of personal interest like peace education, legislative and foreign policy advocacy, community organizing, restorative justice and mediation, social justice and peace advocacy, human rights and immigrants’ rights.

Best Part time Bachelors in Biology 2017. 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 [-]
