STUDY PLANS

Department of Biological Sciences


The Department of Biological Sciences was first established in 1990 with only undergraduate program at the beginning. In 2000 an additional program of postgraduate studies were newly established at the level of master degree. The department offers B. Sc. degree in biology through which students will acquire broad knowledge in biological sciences with special emphasis on practical topics. The main goal of the program is to provide high skill capabilities for students to enable them to compete favorably for better opportunities in working fields such as teaching, medical laboratories, food industry or pursuing higher postgraduate study. Furthermore, the department of biological science offers courses in biology to other departments at faculty of sciences. Some of these courses are also offered to the faculties of pharmacy, agriculture and nursing.

On the other hand, the Master program designed to provide 24 credit hours in advance biology courses. After which the student is asked to conduct a research work under the supervision of the department members. Students admitted to this program should hold at least good grades in B. Sc. degree of biology or other equivalent qualifications. Those students who are successfully passed the courses with an average of 70% or above and submit a convincing defense for their thesis will be offered the M. Sc. degree in biology.

Mission

The mission of the department is to provide students the opportunity to explore the science of life in all its complexity and diversity through teaching and research programs. Our graduate should be well educated in the history of scientific discovery in biology, the logical and statistical procedures used to formulate and to test biological hypotheses, and technical skills needed for conducting contemporary biological research.

Vision

Our vision in the department is to actively engage in our disciplines, the department, the faculty, the university as well as the community. We strive to prepare our students for their future by helping them set personal and professional goals and by providing them with the knowledge, experiences, and professional opportunities necessary to reach those goals.

Objectives:

1- The study of life sciences and applications and uses in a comprehensive manner in the community in terms of theoretical and practical and applied.

2- -Preparation of Angels scientific studies of primary and upper areas to work in the medical and health, agriculture, food and pharmaceutical industries and branches of life.

3- Giving students the technical skills in the use of scientific instruments and equipment that can be used in the study of theoretical and applied.

4- Giving the students academic and practical information about life sciences in various trends and specializations.

5- Supplement the state institutions and the private sector and mixed Palmlakat primary and senior specialist to work in this area.

6- Research and study of all that is new in the Life Sciences and keep abreast of developments in this scientific field and be included in the curriculum prescribed.
