Promoting a culture of exploration and collaboration across all areas of research and study, the undergraduate programme in Biology is targeted at students with strongly developed interests in Biology. Courses will also be offered for non-majors interested in learning more about Biology or for meeting their scientific temperament needs.https://www.youtube.com/embed/hVFJ6XdffGU?rel=0
Courses for Biology majors will provide a strong foundation for research and as well as for careers in the biological sciences, medicine, pharmaceutical and biotech industry, teaching and other related fields. A prospective Biology major student is required to complete 12 core courses in Biology and suggested optional courses in Science and Biology along with the mandatory requirement of 12 foundation courses.
Students who wish to enhance their research pursuit beyond the institutional requirements of B.Sc. in Biology can pursue the 4th year in Biology, which will include courses in Physiology, Computational Biology and Bioinformatics, Landmark studies in Biology, Plant Biology and project work.
Ashoka University, in addition to liberal arts, has been offering Mathematical and Computational Sciences as majors to undergraduate students since the inception of the university. From the academic year 2017-2018, the University has strengthened its Sciences department with the launch of pure majors in Physicsand Biology.
A science education at Ashoka University seeks to cultivate engagement with the liberal arts in a way that is multi-disciplinary and culturally crucial. Under the tutorship of world-class faculty, science at Ashoka University creates a strong appetite for research in students. Students learn science in harmony with the humanities, and this allows them the chance to gain exposure to new careers at the intersection of science and humanities.
Through sophisticated labs for Biology and Physics, with high-end research equipment, the University aims to enable students to gain exposure to research and experimentation, to understand the subject through hands-on experience.
Admission to Ashoka University is based entirely on merit. For further information about the application process and financial aid log, students can log onto visit .
