About this program

Bachelor of Science : Biological Sciences

The Biological Sciences Program promotes an understanding of life spanning all levels of organizations, starting from atoms, molecules to cells, and organisms to ecosystems.

The program offers a Bachelor of Science in Biology, which provides students with a rigorous background in the field. Students interested in Nursing may also pursue an Associates in Liberal Arts with a focus on Biology, which provides them with the necessary prerequisites for Nursing School. The Biological Sciences program is designed to increase and optimize the student’s future opportunities. It prepares them for graduate work, entrance exams, professional and/or research-oriented further studies and careers in biology and health sciences. To elaborate, the program offers courses such Anatomy and Physiology, Microbiology, Chemistry, Statistics, Life Span Development and Abnormal Psychology, most of which are the prerequisites for nursing school.

Our program consists of 4 faculty members having a wide spectrum of experience outside of teaching, which enhances the overall academic experience. Students will also have several opportunities for learning outside the classroom, including seminars, field visits, internships and opportunities for research.
