A key strength of studying biology at Atiba University is exposure to the breadth of biological sciences with the aim of understanding the behaviour of living systems from the level of cells up to whole organisms and ecosystems.
Our biology degree starts broadly and then introduces more choice in years two, three and four, giving you the freedom to specialize or maintain breadth in your studies depending on your interests. In your final year, you will complete a research project on a topic of your choice, and choose from an even wider selection of modules. The range of research-oriented and transferable skills you will learn will also enhance your employability as a graduate.
Our biology lab is well equipped and our staff are resourceful professionals and experts in their field.
Graduates from the department of biological and chemical science will enjoy excellent career opportunities. You can study for a higher degree in life sciences and you may choose to follow careers in the field, particularly in the research and management areas of pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, biomedical science, food technology, agricultural sciences, and pest, disease and environmental management.
Similar opportunities exist for biological and chemical scientists in government and independent laboratories involved in medical research, public health, forensic investigation, disease research, conservation, and pollution. You can also go on to work in medical careers, become teachers, or even work in the media
