The degree program is designed to provide our graduates with a sound basis and conceptual understanding of the major theories and disciplines of biology, including foundations of cell biology, biochemistry, genetics, microbiology, and molecular biology. This program will provide flexibility to our students to be able to pursue careers in various areas of research, academia and industry including health, food sciences, diagnostics, therapeutics, agriculture, nanotechnology and pharmaceuticals. Several courses related to philosophy, logic and social sciences have been included in this program to build our students’ capacity to excel in a multi-disciplinary world. This program necessitates the students to learn and carry out a meta-analysis in later part of their degree to acquire the ability to critically appraise scientific literature. A hands-on research project in their final semester will give the students an opportunity to utilize the acquired lab based skills to conduct research.
