This course serves to introduce natural science students to the basic concepts of ecology and evolution. Students at the end of this course should be able to understand better the different aspects of the environment and in turn know how each individual unit inter plays a role in our complex ecosystems. Students should also be presented with themes of evolution to help them understand how biological processes have shaped today’s complex but unique world.

General Chemistry 2 is a continuation in the General Chemistry sequence. This sequence (General Chemistry 1 & 2) serves as the first courses for chemistry majors and minors, as well as service courses for several other programs and pre-professional programs in the sciences. This course introduces students to the principles of chemistry as well as continues the exploration on the application of chemistry in every day life.

In order to understand animal and plant development and reproduction, there is a need to understand genetics, variation and natural selection, which are the three most important mechanisms that lead to evolution. This section of Biology will help explain the structures of that enhance reproductive success within organisms. On the other hand reproductive Biology covers the remarkable diversity of reproductive mechanisms that both plants and animals possess. This course in Biology is a search for the features and processes that unify the remarkable diversity of living organisms and generally how both animals and plants reproduce. Genetics is a fundamental base course for advance biology. It is the study of the function and behaviour of genes. Genetics focuses on understanding the process which contributes to the great variation of traits that seen in nature, such as the colour of a flower’s petals, the markings on a butterfly’s wings, or such human behavioural traits as personality or musical talent. This course seeks to teach the learner how the information encoded in genes is used and controlled by cells and how it is transmitted from one generation to the next and also how tiny variations in genes can disrupt an organism’s development or cause disease. It also focuses on the contemporary applications of this science and its advancement. Students should also be presented with themes of evolution to help them understand how biological processes have shaped today’s complex but unique world.

It brings to life the connections between structure and function in the human body and explores the health and disease field. A central feature of the learning experience is the development of a core set of real-life, transferable skills techniques in the following areas: group project work, data analysis, public presentation, report writing, research methodology and critical thinking. This course focuses in human biology and an in-depth, scientific understanding of the structure and function of the human body in health; the signs and symptoms of disease. This course delivers an appreciation of current knowledge in this field and encourages students to foster their analytical study skills and critical thinking to keep up to date with the latest developments. The skills developed during this course make graduates ideally suited to a broad range of career opportunities.

This course introduces biology majors to the structures and functions of cells and their organelles emphasising on the roles of the different organelles. Topics include: cell theory; ultra-structure of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells; structure and functions of cell organelles and inclusions; cell division; DNA replication; transcription; translation; cellular infectious particles.
