Welcome Remarks by Head of Department

Welcome to the Department of Biological Sciences page of the Kyambogo University, Faculty of Science website

The Department of Biological Sciences while committed to research and teaching of students to build human manpower to support development, it is also committed to embracing good practice changes in line with the Sustainable Development Goals especially in areas of training, research, consultancies and community outreach. We focus on using an integrated and interdisciplinary approach that promotes competitiveness and versatility so as to benefit from emerging global trends in Science and Technology

We provide supportive and dynamic education experience for our students. The Biological Sciences students are given the opportunity to gain practical hands on laboratory and field experience, gain values like independence of thought, respect for individual talents and innovative research. All students have the opportunity to complete a piece of independent research as part of their undergraduate and graduate programmes.

The department is now offering graduate training leading to PhD degree in biology and a highly focused Master of Science degree in Conservation and Management of Natural Resources. We are also developing a number of new programmes and courses which we are confident will be received with enthusiasm by the biological sciences fraternity and stakeholders. Look out for them from this website.

As a department we encourage student led and peer to peer activities through which critical life skills are developed and experiences shared. Graduates of the department are pursuing careers in academic institutions, research institutes, Government agencies, health facilities, industry and public education.

We welcome and encourage partnerships and links with industry, business, cultural, intercultural and social institutions in order to enhance the opportunities for our students to develop the skills necessary to flourish in life. Individuals and institutions wishing to collaborate with the department of biological sciences can contact us directly on biologicalsci@kyu.ac.ug.

I encourage you to visit the website for updates on department issues; and potential students to survey and use this website.

If you have questions about any aspects of our department, feel free to email us. Will be glad to answer your questions or put you in touch with someone who can.

You are all welcome
