Bachelor of Science in Biology
WELCOME TO THE OFFICIAL PAGE OF THE BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN BIOLOGY PROGRAM OF SOUTHERN LUZON STATE UNIVERSITY!
OBJECTIVES OF THE BS BIOLOGY PROGRAM
1. To strengthen students’ ability to develop critical and logical thinking by producing biological researches and conducting in-depth investigation in other related fields;
2. To develop the students’ capabilities in various technical skills in biology and allied fields; and
3. To produce globally competent biologist who can utilize research outputs to extend services to the community such as medical missions and environmental awareness programs
ABOUT THE BS BIOLOGY PROGRAM
Biology, a study of life has evolved into a diversified field of study that provides solution to many of present day problems such as pollution, food security and ageing, spread of diseases and over population. These problems can be addressed to the application of biological knowledge. It is on this context that the course was offered in Southern Luzon State University (SLSU).
In response, the College of Arts and Sciences started to offer Bachelor of Science in Biology as a baccalaureate degree program under the Natural Sciences Department. The program was approved by the Board of Trustees on April 20, 2001 by virtue of BOT Resolution No. 305, s 2001. The offering of the course was made effective in June, 2003.
The course was offered to meet the challenges posed by the global, national and regional environment. The biological perspective and an appreciation for how science works have become elements of good citizenship in an era when informed evaluations of health issues, environmental problems, and applications of new technologies are more crucial. It is hoped that the course will serve as a generalized framework for biological study with the end view of grounding students on the fundamental concepts, principles, and theories of biological sciences and introducing them to the conduct of biological research.
Since the BS Biology establishment in 2003, under the initiative of the then president, and also a BS Biology graduate from a prestigious university, Dr. Joselito Jara, it primarily aimed to cater science enthusiasts from Quezon Province and other nearby provinces. It has been in existence for 14 years and accommodated 11 batches of graduates. There are graduates of this program from this institution who pursued medicine (three are already licensed physician), while some are successful medical representatives. Some pursued graduate studies on the different fields of biology, whether they are or they are not in the academe. Some are into research and development in a prestigious university and other government agencies. Many are employed as microbiology and chemistry laboratory analysts and quality assurance officers in well-known food, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries.
Considered as the most established laboratory being used by the BS Biology students, SLSU has the so-called microbiology research laboratory (in Ayuti and in the main campus) which was initially funded by the CHED.
