Department of Biology

The Department of Biology was established in 1967. The aim of this department in the B.Sc. program is to acquaint students with the basics of Biology, different theories, and applications of Biology in other fields. The minimum duration of study is 7 semesters, i.e. 3.5 years. There are 136 credit hours offered in this program.

The Department of Biology also offers Masters and Ph.D. programs. Currently, there are 8 areas of specialization (educational areas of specializations) offered at the M.Sc. level: Cell and Molecular Biology, Animal Physiology, Animal Biosystematics, Plant Systematic-Ecology, Plant Physiology, Microbiology, Microbial Biotechnology, Cell and Developmental Biology.

At the Ph.D. program, students can choose Cell and Molecular Biology, Animal Physiology, Animal Biosystematics, Plant Ecology, or Plant Physiology to continue their education. More
