Bachelor's Degree in Biological Science

What is more important to us than life itself? Biological Science is the study of life as currently known through the method of scientific inquiry. Studies in biology are invigorating, rigorous, and exciting as they constantly evolve with the significant advancements in theory and technology.

Our major at HNU is multi-disciplinary, drawing upon an integration of life and physical sciences. Because the need is great in society for persons who can make wise decisions about complex scientific matters and ethical consequences, we prepare our students with sound theoretical knowledge and practical skills to accept the many challenges of modern society.
