Institutions Offering Bachelor of Science in Genetics and Genomics

  •  National University of Ireland, Galway  
    Course Outline:
    Graduates will be uniquely trained to integrate knowledge and skills from the biological sciences with mathematical, computational and data analytic skills. This multi-disciplinary course covers a range of biological, mathematical and computer science topics:
    • Medicine: the genetic basis of rare and common human diseases and how genomics uncovers genes that contribute to illness.
    • Agri-bioscience: the genetic and biological origins of agriculture; food security and sustainable development.
    • Microbiology: microbial genetics and key medical and environmental impacts of microorganisms.
    • Evolution: evolutionary biology, including natural selection and the genetic mechanisms that shape evolution.
    • Informatics: computer programming and mathematical and algorithmic methods to solve problems in molecular genetics.
    The final year project will allow students to apply their knowledge in a research laboratory.
    Students will benefit from group learning in a small class size, and will graduate with a broad range of skills including communication, teamwork, critical thinking and problem solving. These skills are called transferable because they will transfer and be useful in a broad range of careers post-graduation.
