A BSc (Bachelor of Science) is an academic degree that combines general coursework with specialized classes that prepare students with the knowledge and skills to begin a career. A degree can be earned in a variety of subjects and takes an average of four years to complete.
Natural sciences are a scientific branch that deals with observations, understanding and predictions of natural phenomena. It is a diverse field and includes disciplines such as biological science, physics, chemistry, Earth science and astronomy.
Biology students may choose between the Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BS) degree tracks. Both tracks share the same core of biology and supporting courses
The Biology Department at Waldorf University seeks to prepare its students to take on various leadership roles in solving problems facing human societies. This requires that students learn to think critically and analytically – students must be successful not only in the classroom, but in their ability to use the tools of science. To accomplish this, the Department offers students a choice of programs that will prepare them for success either in graduate and professional schools, or for employment directly after graduation. In addition to these programs, the Waldorf Biology Department offers students opportunities that will help them become leaders in their chosen careers. Our alumni enjoy careers in human medicine (e.g., physicians, physical therapists, chiropractors, pharmacists), veterinary medicine, ecology (e.g., conservationists, marine biologists, park rangers), laboratory technology, education, and others....

You have probably recently studied maths at school. You may have learnt formulas and how to apply them, how to draw graphs and how to calculate areas and volumes. How did you know that the formulas would work? Who was the first person to use that formula – and how did they know it would work?
Studying Mathematics at degree-level is about much more than just applying what you already know to a series of problems. It is a creative, investigative subject where you will push the boundaries of what is possible to achieve through thinking and then apply it to the world.
Our Honours course in Mathematics is designed to be intellectually stimulating and vocationally relevant. This course will appeal to students who like to tackle real-world challenges through the intellectual rigour and purity of approach that is inherent in mathematics. The programme will develop your skills in pure and applied aspects of the subject to an advanced level, combining these with training in probability, advanced statistics and data analysis. In your final year of study, you will tackle a piece of independent research, bringing together this comprehensive portfolio of skills to focus upon a research question of your choice. With support from the University’s careers and placements team, the skills and experience derived from this course should be readily transferable to graduate level employment across a range of sectors....

The Department of Biology at Mansfield University of Pennsylvania offers the Bachelor of Science degree in Biology with optional concentrations in Cell and Molecular Biol
The Department of Biology at Mansfield University of Pennsylvania offers the Bachelor of Science degree in Biology with optional concentrations in Cell and Molecular Biology, Environmental Biology, Fisheries, and Medical Laboratory Sciences. Students may also choose to complete the general Biology degree without a concentration. A feature of all Biology curricula (with the exception of Medical Laboratory Sciences) is the requirement to complete an undergraduate research project.
All concentrations meet the minimum requirements for medical schools. Many Biology graduates become technicians in hospitals and research laboratories. Others go into sales positions with medical and pharmaceutical supply companies, while still others find employment in the environmental and ecological fields. Those students preparing for a career in medicine may meet the minimum requirements for medical, dental, chiropractic, veterinary, and physical therapy schools with proper course selection....

Teaching activities and research work at the Department of Biology (DB) are focused on botanics and protection of the environment, biology and animal ecology, and experimental biology. The DB educates experts who can find a job in state institutions dealing with environment and protection of nature, in research and service laboratories focused on biology and ecology, in cultural and educational institutions focused on ecological education and scientific activities. The Systematic Biology and Ecology degree programme is mainly focused on systematics and phylogenesis of plant and animal organisms and their ecology. Graduates gain necessary knowledge in general biological disciplines, e.g. cellular and molecular biology, the anatomy and morphology of plants, general zoology, systematics and phylogenesis of plants and animals, physiology and ecology of plants and animals, genetics and microbiology. The aim of practical activities in laboratories as well as field survey and experience is to extend students' knowledge and to turn theoretical knowledge into practical applications. The research activities of the Department are supported by many indigenous and foreign grants, as well as by cooperation with a number of colleges and scientific establishments. Among the main research interests in botanics there are floristics and phytocenology, mapping and monitoring of vegetation, species protection and saving programmes for critically endangered species. Within a long-term cooperation with KRNAP (the Krkonoše Mountains National Park) researches on the Krkonoše tundra have been carried out. Zoological research activity deals with e.g. ecology of the hymenopterous sands and steppes, etology and nesting behaviour of birds, parasitism behaviour of...
