Many careers require a bachelor’s degree as an entry-level qualification. A bachelor's degree program is generally a targeted approach to your education, featuring course work centered on the area of study. Some programs include general education classes as well.

What is a Bachelor in Life Sciences? Most life science programs include theory as well as practical opportunities in areas such as general training on the use of scientific equipment, analysis, research and laboratory experience. You may choose a broad program or something with a narrow focus from a large variety of disciplines, including plant or agricultural sciences, zoology, biology, molecular biology, biotechnology, and food science. A bachelor's degree in these areas may prepare you for an immediate career or further study.

Professional capabilities, such as research and analytical skills, are used across the board in science disciplines and are important benefits of earning a Bachelor in Life Sciences. Most programs also improve communication skills, which are useful in both professional and personal relationships.

Finding the right program will depend on many different factors, such as the length of study and the location of the institution, which can impact the cost of the program. Most bachelor's programs may be completed in as few as three years or in as many as five.

Areas of focus can vary, and a bachelor's in life sciences may lead to career opportunities in research, education, or industry. Careers such as lab technician, research scientist, and biochemist are just a few examples of the many employment choices students may have with a life sciences degree. Graduates often go on to pursue advanced degrees or study medicine.

The Wabash College Chemistry Department believes in a challenging curriculum, which thoroughly investigates all areas of modern chemistry and in a significant hands-on laboratory experience in which students become progressively more independent as they proceed through the curriculum. We believe that such an education will prepare chemistry majors for a variety of career outcomes, including those in research, medicine, teaching, and industry.

In recent years, three-fourths of our majors have gone to graduate school in chemistry/ biochemistry or to medical school following graduation. Others have chosen to take jobs as chemists or high school teachers or to attend other professional schools (business, law, and physical therapy). We strive to provide chemistry minors and pre-medical students with the knowledge base they need to succeed in their chosen fields.... [-]

In today’s world, molecular biology, biochemistry, and other biological fields are becoming increasingly information driven. Mainly the need of processing massive quantities of sequence information generated by recent developments in genome sequencing and proteome analysis has propelled these life sciences into a new era in which computer science, information technologies, and biology merged into a single discipline as bioinformatics. Accordingly, genetics in conjunction with bioinformatics have been changing the old view in clinical diagnostics. By comprehensive genetic testing, individuals who are more susceptible to disease can be identified before any disease even exists. This way early predictive measures can be taken. Moreover personalized drug design, to tailor a specialized treatment based on your genetic makeup, seems to be a standard way of disease treatment in the near future.... [-]
