Master of Science in Biology (MSc Biology)
 
  2 Years (Four Semesters)
 
 
The objective of the MSc Programs in Biology is to let the students understand the fundamental principles of these fields in depth, develop analytical techniques, become proficient in experimentation to understand principles and concepts in Biology, and develop a good command over the theoretical and experimental dimensions of these disciplines.


The students willalso learn computational techniques and principles and their applications in Biology and allied fields. Students will develop critical and rational reasoning so as to be able to work on complex problems and be able to develop careers in teaching, research, industry and government.
