M.Sc GENETICS

ABOUT THE COURSE
The program provides a strong theoretical and practical knowledge of key areas of Genetics and its applications. There is a research module to help students to survey literature, analyze data and make critical assessments of scientific reports, papers or research proposals, and to plan their own research program.
The course in total is worth 90 credit points in 4 semesters.
TARGET  GROUPS : The main target group is that of Graduates (BSc) in the Biological Sciences who wish to pursue a career in Genetics either in industry or academia. The program may also be suitable for those with backgrounds in BSc in Botany, Zoology, Physiology, Anthropology, Food Science & Nutrition, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Molecular Biology, Genetics and associated all Biological Sciences who have a strong interest in Genetics.
