B.Sc Biology Course Structure

B.Sc Biology is a combination of 6-semester put together in 3-year to complete the course as the aspirants focus on living organisms' aspects in the relevant area. Specialization on the research-based practical experiments projects until the last semester sharpens the aspirants' skill set and work experience. 

The course structure is:

  • VI Semesters
  • Core and Lab Subjects
  • Internship
  • Projects Submission

B.Sc Biology Teaching Methodology and Techniques

Unlike any teaching method, aspirants are made to work hard day and night to become successful biologists. Aspirants undergo various theoretical and practical experiments to gain experience and improve the skill set, which would come in very handy in the long run.

 The teaching and techniques of B.Sc Biology are as follows:

  • Collaborative
  • Process-based & Problem-based Experimental
  • Lecturing
  • Concept Mapping
  • Discussion
  • Reading
  • Hands-on Activities

B.Sc Biology Projects

B.Sc Biology is very sophisticated from the aspirant's point of view, the teaching and the proper guidance of the staff faculty make the job easy and reasonable by distributing the project work by forming a group of aspirants which is equal in all manner the needy ones would get help from the wise aspirants, and a balance would be in the system group, which would help the aspirant to understand the project within their criteria.

Popular B.Sc Biology projects are:

  • Obesity in Housepets
  • Male Pregnancy Among Animals
  • Birds Behaviour Study
  • Camouflage Mechanism in Sea Animals
  • Natural Disease resistance in Plant Pathology
