Microbiology & Immunology


Topics of Study

In this program, you will study basic biological sciences, chemistry, and physics to learn about unicellular organisms and colonies, and subcellular genetic matter, such as bacteria, molds, viruses, fungi, and protozoa. General microbiology explains microorganism diversity, functions, growth, structure, genetic makeup, reproduction, and preservation. The program is usually coupled with immunology, the study of the biological mechanisms involved in pathogenesis of disease, and parasitology, the study of biological organisms living with host organisms.
