Biology is the science that deals with the origin, history, characteristics, and habits of life. The approach in biology education is dynamic in an attempt to keep the basic programs current with the advances being made in the field. At AUC, as at many colleges and universities, there is a growing tendency to merge what had diverged into widely segregated fields: botany and zoology, classical and modern molecular approach, field and laboratory studies. Today, with recent advances in the fields of biomedicine, molecular biology, and genetics and the growing political interests in the environment and biodiversity, the discipline is growing with increasing opportunities in the job market (and for research grants) for well-trained biologists.
