By Michael R. SullivanThe definition of a major is that it requires the completion of three units or a maximum of one semester of study at a university.
The most commonly accepted majors in biology are: biology, chemistry, physics, and mathematics.
These terms are commonly used to describe different types of academic disciplines.
These disciplines are distinguished from each other by a unique set of requirements.
Biology has a very broad range of subjects, from genetics to molecular biology.
Chemistry, physics and mathematics are generally considered more specialized in their areas.
Biochemistry and physiology focus on the body and its organs.
Genetics focuses on genetic variation in individuals.
Mathematics focuses on mathematical analysis and mathematical methods.
The fields of medicine, nursing, and public health are also broadly defined.
Biology majors can combine disciplines, such as biochemistry and biophysics, to form a more broad and more varied set of programs.
The University of Maryland’s College of Medicine has its own majors, but its degree program is one of the largest in the United States.
The College of Engineering has four undergraduate majors and three graduate degrees.
The University of Washington has two undergraduate majors, a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering and a Master’s of Science and an M.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering.
Both of these programs are among the most prestigious in the country.
In the United Kingdom, the University of Southampton is one the largest colleges in the University System.
The School of Engineering at the University at Buffalo, one of America’s oldest universities, is one that has gained prominence in recent years.
