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.
Sustainable Aquaculture - The Postgraduate Diploma/MSc is a postgraduate programme delivered 100% online no attendance required.
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.
This academically challenging and career-developing programme focuses on research and development using biological and chemical principles and systems to create new products, services and industries. You will employ elements of the developing field of synthetic biology to bring about significant changes and major innovations that address the challenges of rapidly changing human demographics, resource shortages, energy economy transition and the concomitant growth in demand for more and healthier food, sustainable fuel cycles, and a cleaner environment.
The Biochemistry MSc programme aims to attract UK, EU and overseas students to Edinburgh to an academically-challenging and career-developing MSc programme studying biological systems at the molecular and cellular level.
The MProf Food & Drink Innovation (Packaging & Sustainability) offers a unique postgraduate experience, specifically designed in discussion with industry bodies (Scotland Food & Drink, Skills Development Scotland, Interface Food & Drink). As postgraduate students, highly talented individuals will work in mixed-discipline teams to develop innovative food and drink packaging and sustainable solutions.
Molecular Biosciences is an interdisciplinary area that includes biochemistry, cell biology, genetics, microbiology, and molecular biology. The intersection of these fields serves as the foundation for much of modern biotechnology, medical research and such interdisciplinary fields as biological chemistry and biological physics.
Washington State University’s Food Science and Management master’s degree combines WSU’s world-renowned food-science graduate program with business courses in executive management.
Biotechnology is a globally expanding area with respect to both research and production. Food Biotechnology is a branch of food science in which modern biotechnological techniques are applied; on the other hand, it is an essential part of biotechnology aimed at developing new varieties of food involving biological systems in their processing.
The application of molecular biology in medical sciences has led to huge advances in the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of human disease. Students choosing to study course will enjoy a modular course that delivers both the theoretical knowledge and practical skills required for research in the field of modern medically-related molecular biology.
The MSc and MRes courses at Leeds are designed to prepare recent graduates for a PhD programme or to begin a career in conservation. For established conservation professionals our modules provide additional skills to support them in their work. An increasing number of students treat the MSc as a conversion course, after having taken degrees in non-biological subjects.
