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 - Zoology 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.

Diversity in Animals
This course presents the morphological, functional, and ecological diversity within the major phyla of animals. It surveys the ontogeny, function and behavior in a variety of species, and their interaction with the environment.
Academic Supervisor : Jose R. Vazquez

Animal Physiology
This course explores animal physiology at the levels of organisms and behavior, organ systems, and cells. It studies the metabolism, temperature, locomotion, osmoregulation, respiration, circulation, digestion, neurons, muscles, and hormones.
Academic Supervisor : Jose R. Vazquez

Animal Reproduction
This course deals with the reproductive mechanisms, environmental influences on reproductive endocrinology, physiology, behavior, and ecology of vertebrates. Discussions extend from organismal to cellular level and focus on the diversity of reproductive patterns among animals. It considers the effects of temperature, oxygen, and other environmental factors on the distribution and abundance of animals; as well as habitat selection, food strategies, and mating systems in the organization of reproduction.
Academic Supervisor : Jose R. Vazquez

Anatomy of Vertebrates
This course compares the structure of vertebrate organ systems: integument, skeletal, muscle, digestive, respiratory, cardiovascular, urinary, and reproductive. It emphasizes on evolutionary trends.
Academic Supervisor : Jose R. Vazquez

Biomechanics
This course analyzes body motion, motor learning, and performance. The principles of biomechanics are applied to: muscle mechanics, the evaluation of body motion efficiency, postural and soft tissue dynamics, and prescription exercise.
Academic Supervisor : Stefan Batran

Animal Biology
This course examines the biological mechanisms that animals employ to survive in a diversity of environments; molecular, cellular, and physiological mechanisms are discussed in an evolutionary context that emphasizes animals adaptive responses. It reviews the underlying genetic and biochemical regulation of development considering developmental genetics and experimental embryology.
Academic Supervisor : Jose R. Vazquez

Invertebrate Animals
This course examines the comparative biology and morphology of invertebrates, their structures, and functions. It deals with principles of animal organization, Protista, simpler multicellular animals, echinoderms, chordates, annelids and related worms, mollusks, and arthropods.
Academic Supervisor : Jose R. Vazquez

Mollusks & Insects
This course presents the structure, classification, physiology, and ecology of mollusks and insects. It also considers the interrelationships of insects and man and their developmental processes and adaptations in diverse insect groups. It emphasizes hormonal control mechanisms in metamorphosis, polymorphism, regeneration, and genetic analysis of development.
Academic Supervisor : Jose R. Vazquez

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

Marine Zoology
This course explores the natural history, functional morphology, ecology, distribution, habitat, adaptation, trophic interrelationships, and evolution of marine animals. It shows comparative morphology and biology of marine invertebrates, as well as the morphological, physiological, behavioral, and ecological diversity of fishes of the world.
Academic Supervisor : Jose R. Vazquez

Zoology
This curse completely and effectively covers biological principles, genetics, evolution, diversity, and the anatomy and physiology of animals. It also covers the mechanisms of animal behavior and its evolutionary causes, illustrating theoretical points with examples drawn from the studies of both vertebrates and invertebrates.
Academic Supervisor : Jose R. Vazquez
