Program Courses

In the face of global challenges such as climate change and environmental management, population growth and food security, and biotechnology and human health, the Biological Sciences have never been more important. Recent discoveries in the field have advanced at breathtaking speeds with beneficial outcomes for mankind. 

ACT’s four-year BS program in Biological Sciences is the culmination of its 15-year past experience in developing and delivering STEM curriculum in collaboration with leading American educational institutions, such as Northeastern University and Washington University.

This degree provides graduates with a solid foundation of scientific knowledge from the molecular to the ecosystemic level, but also equips them with practical laboratory experience and research skills which are essential and valuable in a wide range of advanced studies or employment options.
