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 - Human Biology 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.

Life Science
This course explores the origin and nature of life, from simple single-cell to complex plants, animals, and human beings. It also covers the diversity and unity in the living world by studying the forms and organization of bacteria and other cells, the specialized structure of the human body, and how the organism is regenerated, maintained, and repaired.
Academic Supervisor : Jose R. Vazquez

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

Cell Development
This course examines the genetic, molecular, and functional aspects of cellular development. It covers genome structure and function; gametogenesis; informational macromolecules; cell cycle control; gene-regulatory hierarchies in pattern formation, sex determination, cell-cell interaction, signal transduction, and hormone regulation; control of cell lineage and specification of cell type; and methods of genetic manipulation and modification.
Academic Supervisor : Jose R. Vazquez

Human Nutrition
This course examines the properties, functions, requirements, interrelationships, and metabolism of nutrients, and the nutritional needs throughout stages of the life cycle including pregnancy and lactation, infancy, adolescence, and aging. It deals with the socioeconomic, cultural, and psychological influences of food, nutrition behavior, food safety, and biotechnology.
Academic Supervisor : Stefan Batran

Cell Biology
This course provides an integrated study of the structure, function, and interactions of cells, with an emphasis on their molecular composition and dynamics. Topics covered include: membrane structure and transport; receptors and channels; protein targeting; cytoskeleton; cell cycle control; signal transduction; programmed cell death; cell adhesion and differentiation.
Academic Supervisor : Jose R. Vazquez

Human Biology
This course discusses the development of cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems while integrating molecular biology, genetics, ecology, evolution, and diversity. It specifically covers the biology topics that are of relevance to humans, their heath and sickness. It also describes how the human organism is maintained and healed.
Academic Supervisor : Daniel Scott Janik

Human Anatomy & Physiology
This course describes the organization and function of the human body. It explores the microscopic structure of its constituent, their interrelationships, and their integration within the body as a whole.
Academic Supervisor : Alfredo Fernandez Blanco

Immunology
This course describes the immune system, its structure, components, mechanisms, immunological methods, immune response, and inflammation. Special emphasis is given to clinical immunology namely hypersensitivity, atopy, auto-immunity, and immunodeficiency disorders.
Academic Supervisor : Daniel Scott Janik

Human Body & Mind
This course examines the human being as an integrated physiological and psychological entity. It covers aspects of the human body's function, development, and care and explores the interaction between body and mind in physiological, clinical, and psychological terms. It also describes the interaction between the human body and mind and their environment and their evolution.
Academic Supervisor : Ruben Von Stopeck

Vertebrates
This course presents the biology of vertebrate animals and emphasizes their diversity, adaptations, and evolutionary history. It introduces the mechanisms and control of vertebrate behavior in an ecological context, as shaped by natural selection. It also considers the classical and current theories regarding the genetic basis of vertebrate development, specialized sensory systems, and the organization of responses in changing environments.
Academic Supervisor : Jose R. Vazquez

Human Pathology
This course of pathological processes in the human body focuses on the basic mechanisms and concepts of tissue reaction to injury, degenerative cellular changes, cellular response to the inflammatory reaction, and concepts of immunology. Additionally, pathologic responses of specific body systems to infections and degenerative diseases are stressed.
Academic Supervisor : Daniel Scott Janik

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

Therapeutic Physiology
This course explains the mechanisms of action and interaction of the physiological body systems with pathological and clinical considerations. It presents a system and not a regional approach that facilitates the therapist focus on the relationship between structures and function.
Academic Supervisor : Stefan Batran
