Biological Sciences

Biology is the study of living organisms: their structure, function, organization, origin, and evolution. That’s why we have an active internship program that puts students in hospitals, labs, museums, agencies and businesses related to biology. These annual fees are for full-time students who begin this undergraduate course here in 2020. Our faculty, research scientists, and graduate and undergraduate students are exploring everything from ecosystems to microbiology and developmental biology; evolution to cell biology; molecular biology to systems biology, bioinformatics, and genomics.

The biological sciences as a whole began to boom in the Cold War era. As a result, beginning in the late 1960s, entire departments of organismic biology began to spring up, many focusing on ‘ecology and evolutionary biology,’ or ‘ecology, evolution, and behavior,’ offering doctoral degrees in the area, and enrolling even more practitioners to evolutionary biology. The Gerhold lab uses C. elegans germline stem cells to study the complexities of cell division in vivo.

It covers all aspect of the study of living creatures like occurrence, classification, ecology, economic importance, external form, organization, internal structure, nutrition, health and other body functions, reproduction, life history, inheritance and origin. It is broken down into many fields, reflecting the complexity of life from the atoms and molecules of biochemistry to the interactions of millions of organisms in ecology.

Taking the SAT Subject Test in either Biology Ecological or Biology Molecular can help you indicate to colleges that you are interested in focusing on science. Some universities will offer more specialised degrees within the biological sciences such as zoology or ecology. The 20th and 21st centuries may be known to future generations as the beginning of the “Biological Revolution.” Beginning with Watson and Crick explaining the structure and function of DNA in 1953, all fields of biology have expanded exponentially and touch every aspect of our lives.

The data on the right relates to the three-year BA in Biological Sciences. The American Journal of Human Biology is cascaded with the sound science open access journal Molecular Genetics & Genomic Medicine. Being broad – based and multi- disciplinary, the term biology is often replaced by the term life sciences or biological sciences. Biological sciences encompass a broad area of specialist subjects linked to the study of living organisms and the science behind ‘life’.
