Full Teaching Degree in Biological Sciences – Environmental Biology -Environmental Studies with an emphasis on zoology, botany, physiology and ecology.

Full Teaching Degree in Biological Sciences – Molecular Biology -Molecular processes (biotechnology), biochemistry, microbiology, immunology, physiology, cell biology and genetics. Different specializations geared towards: biochemistry; botany; cytology; histology and embryology; ecology; plant physiology; genetics; zoology; and zoonosis.

Teaching Degree -The subjects covered in the biological sciences program qualify graduates to work in schools and non-school educational institutions both as elementary and secondary school teachers and in other areas related to education. Part of this professional training consists of investigation into and reflection on political and cultural aspects of education.

Students enrolled on program 06 (biological sciences) may also choose a minor.
