Be on the edge of biological research, prepare to attend medical, 牙科或兽医学院,都有博彩平台推荐的生物项目. 

博彩平台推荐的生物学课程教学生如何阅读和解释科学研究,以及如何发展和开展自己的研究. 该计划还为学生提供毕业后从事医学相关研究所需的基础课程,包括医学预科, pre-veterinary and pre-dental.

TU的生物学课程为学生的未来做好准备,课程涵盖生命系统(解剖学和生理学)的生物学和生化基础, developmental biology, cellular and molecular biology); chemical and physical foundations of biological systems (organic and biochemistry); psychological, 行为(动物行为)的社会和生物学基础, 心理学导论)和批判性分析和推理能力. 这些课程不仅为学生在生物学领域的职业生涯做准备, 也适用于研究生入学考试,比如医学院入学考试(MCAT), 研究生入学考试(GRE)和牙科入学考试(DAT). 

Through the biology program, 学生将在正式的观察实践中学习技能, 作为工作场所的生物学家或高级学位的候选人,实验和假设检验是必要的. They will be able to articulate, verbally and in writing, knowledge of biology, biological methods and biological issues in context. 学生将了解生物学对整个社会的影响,以及生物学与其他学科的相互作用.

生物学学生将有机会获得一系列的体验式学习机会,大大提高他们对这门学科的理解. Students will engage in laboratory experiments, 学生将进行实际调查,学习DNA分析等技术, microbiological culturing, or dissections. 这些经历不仅强化了课堂概念,也培养了批判性思维, problem-solving abilities, and proficiency in handling scientific equipment. 学生也将有机会参加实地考察, where students visit natural habitats, ecosystems, 或者在研究中心观察和研究自然环境中的各种生物. 这种实践的方法可以让学生直接应用他们的理论知识, develop fieldwork skills, 并对生态相互作用的复杂性有更深的认识. Finally, 实习或研究实习为生物系学生提供了接触真实世界的机会, 允许他们与研究机构的专业人员一起工作, conservation organizations, or governmental agencies. 这样的机会使学生能够为正在进行的项目做出贡献, conduct independent research, 并获得对生物学实际应用的宝贵见解.
