The Program undertakes teaching and practical activities in many fields related to ‎Biology. These activities enable graduates to be engaged in jobs from private and ‎public sectors such as food industry, pharmaceutical industry, food safety and ‎diseases control.


Teaching and Learning

The Program provides an appropriate learning and educational environment for ‎students.  The faculty provides the department with all needed teaching facilities ‎such as halls and laboratories. Laboratories are equipped with modern instruments ‎required for practical courses.‎

Upon graduation students in this program should be able to:

  • Use scientific methods to explain different natural phenomena critically and ‎creatively.
  • Expand own knowledge independently.
  • Interact and communicate with people from same and other disciplines.
  • Implement and preserve professional ethics in different sectors, academic or ‎professional.
  • Able to pursue graduate study in different areas of Biology at different ‎university systems.
  • Undertake teaching duties in Biology in schools.

Coursework and Assessment

Studies consist of lectures, various problems, reports, as well as seminar ‎presentations and examinations.  

The assessment is mainly based on the grades of exams, seminar presentations, ‎reports and laboratory reports.‎
A numerical scale 0-4 in whole numbers is used.

In addition to courses mentioned in in the plan of the program, students are ‎required to spend 40 days of practical training in schools and/or public sectors that ‎are related to Biology in Palestine or abroad.
