Microbiology is a broad science encompassing the study of bacteria, algae, protozoa, fungi, and viruses in terms of their ecology, biochemistry, physiology, genetics, and role in disease processes. Of particular interest is the use of microbes in industrial applications for the production of foods and natural products, such as vitamins, as well as their rapidly expanding role in biotechnology and genetic engineering studies.
Completion of the Bachelor of Science in Microbiology may allow the student to continue into more specialized and in-depth advanced study leading to the Master in Microbiology. The breadth of interests and expertise includes environmental microbiology, microbial genetics, genetic engineering, immunology and immunochemistry, medical microbiology, mycology, protozoology, virology, microbial physiology, and biochemistry. Therefore, a wide variety of research areas is available for investigation by students.
