Life Sciences

A Masters degree is an academic degree awarded to individuals who successfully denote a higher level of expertise. There are two main types of Masters - taught and research.

Biological & life sciences is an area of science that focuses on the body and all of the functions associated with it. Students may choose to take classes such as anatomy, physiology, genetics, immunology, and toxicology.

Nothing helps scholars grow like exposure to a diverse set of ideals and backgrounds and that’s just what any student will get in the Middle East. From ancient civilizations to modern day cultures, scholars have the opportunity to experience new things in this region.

Master in Plant Science

King Abdullah University of Science and Technology
Campus 3 semesters September 2019 Saudi Arabia Thuwal

​The goal of the Plant Science Program is to develop a thorough understanding of plant growth and function under challenging environmental conditions, such as those found in Saudi Arabia. The fundamental biology of plants is studied at a range of levels (e.g. genomic, proteomic, metabolomics), and the interactions of plants with their environment, both abiotic (heat, salt, and drought) and biotic (pathogens and symbionts) are investigated. Application of this knowledge will allow development of plants with enhanced tolerance to environmental stresses and help to establish sustainable agriculture systems in arid regions of the world.

Master in Bioscience

King Abdullah University of Science and Technology
Campus 3 semesters September 2019 Saudi Arabia Thuwal

The Bioscience program plays a key role in tackling many of the global challenges being addressed by KAUST, with a general emphasis on what we term Adaptive Biology or the study of the mechanisms that allow organisms to adapt to their environment. The unique location of KAUST on the shores of the Red Sea makes comprehensive exploration of the biodiversity of this unique ecosystem and its potential biotechnology applications possible. [+]

About the Program

The Bioscience program plays a key role in tackling many of the global challenges being addressed by KAUST, with a general emphasis on what we term Adaptive Biology or the study of the mechanisms that allow organisms to adapt to their environment. The unique location of KAUST on the shores of the Red Sea makes comprehensive exploration of the biodiversity of this unique ecosystem and its potential biotechnology applications possible.

The Bioscience Program provides an introduction to living systems with courses in cell and molecular biology and biophysics. The program is comprised of two tracks of self-contained courses consisting of lectures, seminars and laboratory classes. Each course provides an in-depth review of the subject and examples of current research in the field.... [-]
