BS Microbiology

Microbiology is the study of microscopic organisms such as viruses, bacteria, algae, fungi, slime molds and protozoa. As the methods exploited to study and manipulate these organisms are different from the techniques used to study other domains of life, therefore, our BS Microbiology program is focused on biological investigations of microbes. Microbiologists can pursue their careers in various fields such as agriculture, food, environment, industrial microbiology, public health, pharmaceuticals, resource management, and Academia.
