Because modern biological science encompasses many fields – including medicine, pharmacology, theremmatology, genetics, and environmental engineering – and each field is in linked with theother in some way, our teaching philosophy is to provide a dynamic and varied academic curriculum that embraces both macroscopic and microscopic fields. Courses in cellular biology, developmental biology, molecular biology, genetics, microbiology, taxonomy, botany, animal and plant physiology, are just some of the general courses offered. Furthermore, field work at sites around the nation, herb garden, and greenhouse further enhance students’ experience in their study of life science
