Biology is the study of life and embraces many different areas of both biological and biomedical interest. Studies range from exploring molecular structures, to understanding how genes work, the development and behaviour of microorganisms, plants and animals, their evolution, and their environmental interactions and impacts. It reveals core scientific knowledge of how cells and organisms function, and results in applications that underpin up-to-the-minute technological and scientific advances. Our Biological Sciences with Management programme provides you with a wide set of skills suitable for careers in management, commerce or communication. It will allow you to use your knowledge of biological sciences in a wide context. At the end of Year 2, students specialise in biological sciences with management in a specific subject area of biological sciences. In this programme you will take a combination of courses from biological sciences and the Business School.
