Biology is presented as a modern multidisciplinary science, reflecting the increasing trend for the life sciences to bridge across scientific disciplines and to integrate multiple types of information for a comprehensive understanding of biological systems. These concepts are taught with a strong emphasis on real-world applications of this knowledge in understanding health and disease and complex biological systems.

There are five emphasis tracks in the biological sciences: Molecular and Cell Biology, Human Biology, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Developmental Biology, and Microbiology and Immunology.
