BS Biology is a 4-year undergraduate honors program that provides an excellent training in the biological sciences. Its curriculum, consisting of essential biological disciplines and more than 50 allied fields that can be chosen as electives, is excellent preparation for the Ateneo School of Medicine and Public Health and other top medical schools, as well as for graduate studies in local and international higher education institutions. Students choose from among four areas of specialization, namely: Biomedical Science, Cell and Molecular Biology, Ecology and Systematics, and Microbiology. Students of the Department of Biology are given rigorous training through innovative lecture and laboratory courses that are in line with the department’s research thrusts and through the undergraduate Thesis and Practicum. Majors choose eight electives within their chosen area, ultimately leading to a formal Specialization in that area upon graduation.
