METHOD OF INSTRUCTION: Distance Learning Higher Education

 

This distance learning education program is completed by a traditional correspondence instruction method. Once you sign up for the course, Bircham International University will send you (to your mailing address) the suggested textbooks. After reading the book, you will be asked to write a 20 to 35 pages report that reflect your understanding of the book. This report is equivalent to the exam and can be submitted by email or mail. Bircham International University will evaluate your written work. If passed, BIU will issue the corresponding diploma. For more instructions about BIU pedagogy, tutoring, and evaluation, please read our distance learning education study guide. More info...

 

Students enrolling into this distance education program should be aware that:
1. Location: Bircham International University needs a functional geographical location to ship the book and materials for successful completion of this program of study.
2. Communication: Email, courier, phone are key communication instruments with Bircham University that play an important role in the progress and support of this program of study.
3. Capacity: Any impediment, physical or psychological, to read a book and write a report must be communicated to Bircham International University prior to enrollment into this distance learning program.
4. Technology: No specific technology is required to complete this distance education program.
5. Language: Book reading and report writing in other language than English must be requested (and approved by BIU) prior to enrollment in any distance learning program.
6. Discrimination: There is no discrimination with respect to race, color, gender, beliefs or religion.
7. Age: Check the admission requirements for each distance education degree program. More info...

 

All information related to the distance learning degree programs is in English, although you may, upon request and approval, submit the required assignments in other languages.

 

Duration - Biochemistry Online via distance learning

For a program of 21 credits, the estimated time for completion is 21 weeks. For 45 credits, the estimated time for completion will be 45 weeks, and so on. Calculations are approximate. The length of each distance learning degree program is calculated based on an average of 15 hours of learning per week. It also depends on the number of validated credits from previous knowledge and the level of commitment to the studies.

Biology
This course reviews the major areas of biology including cell biology, genetics, evolution, phylogeny, the structure and function of plants and animals, their origin and evolution, their reproduction and genetics, and their diversity and ecological relations.
Academic Supervisor : Jose R. Vazquez

Chemistry
This course reviews the general principles of modern chemistry with emphasis on atomic structure, chemical bonding, the periodic table, equilibria, chemical reactivity, and kinetics.
Academic Supervisor : Jose R. Vazquez

Biochemistry
This course describes the biochemistry and molecular biology of selected key functions of cells, including gene expression, mitochondrial production of metabolic energy, cellular communication with the extra-cellular environment, and regulation of cell division.
Academic Supervisor : Vicente Enrique Martín Olmos

Molecular Cell Biology
This course examines the organization and functioning of cells and cellular organelles at the molecular level, their processes, and their regulation. It stresses on the experimental approaches and structural/functional relationships in the cell.
Academic Supervisor : Jose R. Vazquez

Nucleic Acids
This course examines the chemistry of RNA and DNA, transcription, and splicing of RNA and their control; enzymology of DNA replication; the structure, replication, segregation, recombination, and function of chromosomes; and special topics on transgenics, genetic diseases, and cancer.
Academic Supervisor : Jose R. Vazquez

Food Chemistry
This course explains the relationship between food composition and properties as well as the physico-chemical changes food undergoes during processing, storage, and consumption. It examines the physical and chemical methods fused to analyze food, and uses common food to highlight the complex relationship between the physical and chemical properties of food.
Academic Supervisor : Stefan Batran

Macromolecules
This course studies the macromolecular structure that integrates the basic principles of equilibrium thermodynamics, chemical kinetics, and molecular dynamics in the cell. Particular attention is paid to the forces and energetics of single molecules and how they affect the cell structure and functioning.
Academic Supervisor : Jose R. Vazquez

Cell Bioenergetics
This course discusses biochemical thermodynamics, kinetics, and bioenergetics. It considers topics such as cell metabolism, photosynthesis, lipids, and membranes. It also reviews the relevant bioenergetic principles of photosynthesis, bioluminescence, photoinactivation, and mutation.
Academic Supervisor : Jose R. Vazquez

Neurobiochemistry
This course exposes the current questions and experimental approaches in cellular neuroscience and neurochemistry. It is organized into three areas: the cell and biochemical structure and organization of the nervous system; the biochemical mechanisms underlying neural signaling and plasticity; and the control of cell form and its chemical developmental determinants.
Academic Supervisor : Francisco Chelos Lopez

Proteins & Carbohydrates
This course studies proteins and carbohydrates and describes their metabolic and physiologic concepts, functions, and structures. It considers the proteins and carbohydrates composition of food products, their requirements through the life cycle, the quality of proteins, protein deficiency, carbohydrates physiological importance, low carbohydrate diets, glycemic response to foods, and inborn errors in carbohydrate and protein metabolism.
Academic Supervisor : Stefan Batran

Academic Supervisor : Marcos Mazzuka Petitta

Biochemical Organic Balance
Every disease, symptom, discharge, and pain indicates a chemical imbalance in the body. A body that is chemically well-balanced will normalize itself. This course focuses on the chemical elements, their structures, and their application, including vitamins, enzymes, proteins, starches, prostaglandins, and minerals found in foods in order to understand the biochemical organic balance from which health and well-being spring.
Academic Supervisor : Marcos Mazzuka Petitta
