Biology is a natural science about nature and its principles. This field of study explores living and non-living forms of organisms, including humans, animals, plants and microorganisms. Biology analyzes their structures, functioninig, growth, classifications, evolution, origin, distribution and interrelationships. It has a broad spectrum of academic fields like anatomy, astrobiology, biomechanics, botany, biophysics, pathology, zoology, neurobiology, anthropology, evolutionary biology, ichthyology, histology, biochemistry, ecology, physiology and many others.
Modern biology pays significant attention to cell structures, chemical and organic relations between atoms and molecules, gene engineering and modeling of evolution. Graduates can work in many different positions or improve knowledge at scientific research.
The objective of the MSc course in Molecular Biology is to provide knowledge of the findings in the field of molecular biology, how to apply molecular biology techniques, to provide a broad and deep knowledge on the methodology and to train students to be able to approach scientific problems in a multidisciplinary way, as part of multidisciplinary teams.
The MSc in Agribusiness Management is an accredited master degree program from the University of Debrecen in Hungary.
The MSc in Food Safety and Quality is an accredited master degree program from the University of Debrecen in Hungary.
The Graduate Certificate in Science provides students with the opportunity to further their knowledge in discipline areas critical to their professional responsibilities and interests.
The Master of Biotechnology (Biomedical Science) is an innovative two-year postgraduate program of 48 units.
The Food Safety and Defense graduate certificate program serves the needs of industry and agencies that must protect the human food supply from accidental or deliberate contamination with pathogenic microbes and/or toxicants.
As a program designed for science professionals, courses stress your ability to apply this training to your job and interests.
The Otago Postgraduate Wildlife Management Programme has two course options: a one-year full-time 120-point Postgraduate Diploma in Wildlife Management (PGDipWLM), or a 3-semester 180-point coursework Master of Wildlife Management (MWLM). Both options commence in February.
Plant Breeding plays an important role in the development of plant varieties for food, feed and industrial uses. New varieties have to meet current demands regarding yield, disease resistance, quality characteristics, salt or drought tolerance and suitability for sustainable plant production systems.
The course mixes taught elements with independent research and self-directed study. There is flexibility to pursue personal interests in considerable depth, with guidance and inspiration from Sunderland's supportive tutors. We actively encourage postgraduate students on this course to undertake internships and build up a portfolio of clients and practical experience. Careers in Sport and Exercise Science can develop in at least two directions. Firstly you can help elite athletes reach their optimum sports performance. Secondly you can help the general population to improve fitness through exercise referral and community programmes.
The Plant Science Department is an integrated department that includes programs in crop production, plant breeding, entomology, plant pathology, soils, GIS, water management, weed science, and biotechnology. The primary goals of the department are to conduct research in the above areas, to transmit the results to the public, and to help prepare students for quality lives which includes preparation for an occupation in one or more of the above-mentioned disciplines. Graduate training includes classroom instruction, seminars designed to hone oral and written skills, and meaningful experience in laboratory and field research techniques. Departmental diversity encourages collaborations among disciplines and research programs that inform graduate trainin
The masters and doctoral programs in Biological Sciences allow for considerable latitude in the education and training of students. The plan of study can be designed to meet the interests and individual needs of the student. While the training of most students is largely directed to a single discipline represented within one of the participating departments, cross-discipline training is available. Generally, identification of a major professor with resources to support the student’s dissertation project is required for unconditional acceptance into the program.
