Faculty of Life & Earth Sciences

 

Anyone can know. The point is to understand. The best questions are the ones that create the most uncertainty.

 

Science is in permanent evolution. Bircham International University distance learning degree programs from this faculty of science allow access to specialization in which the student can choose the topics of his or her interest in order to design a distance learning degree program completely adapted to his or her vocation.

There are usually no impediments for the professional practice of these disciplines at medium level scientific posts, at managerial positions, or from a vocational point of view. A distance learning degree program is not the best option for advanced scientific research. Admission into these programs is restricted and limited to qualified candidates with demonstrated theoretical and technical knowledge in their fields of study due to the fact that many of the credits required in scientific specialization cannot be provided effectively through distance learning higher education. A BIU distance learning degree program constitutes an effective way to complement a traditional scientific background with innovative approaches and further specialization.
