The BS Biology program provides a well-rounded education in the life sciences, with equivalent emphasis on plant, animal, and microbial fields. Students are introduced to the basic subjects of Zoology and Botany in their freshman year to serve as a springboard for more specialized subjects such as Genetics, Physiology, and Embryology in their next two years. The program also stresses the importance of biological research and inculcates basic skills in research methods and experimental work via consecutive Bioresearch subjects. The Biology major is exposed to the different aspects of Biology through lectures, laboratory works, research, and field trips. The program not only gives students a firm foothold of the underlying principles of biology. It also relates learning to present-day social and environmental issues such as population control, genetics, and heredity, environmental preservation, or breakthroughs in the medical frontier. Students can specialize in the following:
  • Medical Biology
    • The Medical Biology track provides a strong foundation in the concepts and applications of the biological sciences, and excellent laboratory and research skills for students who are interested in pursuing a career in the medical or paramedical field. Students are exposed to the etiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of microbial, parasitic, arthropod-related as well as non-infectious diseases. The courses also tackle the epidemiology and immune responses to these diseases.
  • Molecular Biology and Biotechnology
    • The Molecular Biology and Biotechnology track aims to broaden the options for students trained in Biology to include careers in biotechnology research, academia, industry, and innovation start-ups. The program will be developing in students biotechnology skills in the laboratory and in accessing and analyzing big data from open-access DNA, RNA, and protein repositories, to enable them to actively participate as movers and leaders of the biomolecular revolution in the Philippines. The program is heavily anchored on biological theory and the developments in the local, regional, and global health and wellness, agriculture, and environment industries. Instruction in the five specialization courses – molecular genetics, proteomics & genomics, bioinformatics, agricultural biotechnology, and industrial biotechnology & enterprise – will focus on gene structure, function and expression, and their applications to medical and industrial microbiology, physiology, developmental biology, molecular diagnosis of diseases, screening and characterization of natural products and molecular ecology and systematics. The program is designed to foster multi-disciplinary & multi-level mentoring and the integration of instruction, research & extension activities. The Medical Biology track provides a strong foundation in the concepts and applications of the biological sciences, and excellent laboratory and research skills for students who are interested in pursuing a career in the medical or paramedical field. Students are exposed to the etiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of microbial, parasitic, arthropod-related as well as non-infectious diseases. The courses also tackle the epidemiology and immune responses to these diseases.
  • Systematics and Ecology
    • The five specialization courses in the Systematics and Ecology track expose students to theories and practices in the fields of taxonomy, systematics, ecology, environmental, and sustainability science. The track provides more than adequate preparation for careers in government and industry, as well as for graduate school and academia.
