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.
Life and Earth Sciences govern the functioning of our planet. The sea moves the weather. The rain feeds the rivers. Water is the essence of life, it gives us all to drink. The land provides us with sustenance. And a lot of beauty, if we take care of it. Earth makes our food grow. And the materials that make up things. We are what we eat, we are what we breathe. The air is the source of health. The atmosphere protects us from the void outside. The sun gives us heat and energy. The night and the moon regulate the cycles of our planet. Life and Earth Sciences teach us to understand and take care of our world.
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.
Anyone can know. The point is to understand. The best questions are the ones that create the most uncertainty.

A good education should teach HOW to think, rather than WHAT to think. More info...
Each distance learning degree program is entirely completed by correspondence. Curricula are designed to meet the needs of the adult student, without interfering significantly in his/her professional life. More info...
Bircham International University adapts each distance learning higher education degree program to the needs of each student and may also account previous education and some professional experience towards the distance learning degree program credit requirements. More info...
Upon enrollment and after fulfilling all requirements, BIU will prepare the distance learning degree program of study and will mail the corresponding textbooks to the address provided by the student (physical books - not online). The student will be required to write reports (and/ or theses) as a way of evaluating his/her distance learning higher education program progress and outcome. More info...
Each profession develops its own entry requirements. Potential BIU students are advised to check, prior to enrollment, whether a Bircham International University distance learning degree is accepted at the professional practice they are seeking. Requirements for a particular profession vary widely among provinces, states, or countries. Some jobs require degrees recognized solely by a Ministry of Education; while others accept a diploma duly legalized or endorsed by a professional association.
