Besides courses intrinsic to its curricula, the Department of Natural Sciences fulfills LAU’s Liberal Arts Curriculum in scientific literacy and provides several courses tailored to the bioinformatics and computer science programs as well as LAU’s pharmacy, medicine, and engineering programs. Our programs emphasize integrated laboratory experiences through which students learn modern experimental techniques.
Graduates may opt to join graduate or professional programs, or they may pursue careers in teaching, healthcare, medicine, industry (chemical engineering, food processing, cosmetics…), biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, and related fields. LAU also has collaboration agreements with distinguished European universities for joint PhD programs in molecular biology and biotechnology. Candidates perform their experimental work at LAU and register for graduate courses at both LAU and the partner university.
