A summer course allows students to take classes they need to fulfill their degree. They can also help scholars accelerate their education. Summer courses often have smaller class sizes and typically last four to eight weeks.

What is a summer course in biology? These sessions can teach core principles of biology, such as gene theory, evolutionary theory, cell theory, and homeostasis. Students can receive lectures and lessons on a diverse range of subjects. Some classes may teach about ecosystems, environmental protection, or cellular structure. Scholars can learn about the history of biology as well as recent discoveries. Interesting experiments or lab activities are often included in a few of the sessions.

Students who take a summer course in biology can develop critical thinking skills. They can also learn how to conduct experiments thoroughly. Students can also understand how cells works, which can benefit them in a number of medical or scientific careers.

Depending on the school and duration of the class, a summer course in biology can be affordable. Prices may increase or decrease, so it is important for students to contact the schools of their choice and do some research beforehand.

Students who are interested in future careers that use biology may consider becoming biomedical engineers, environmental scientists, or biologists. Biological technicians document and perform calculations in the laboratory while genetic counselors analyze patients and discuss the risk of genetic diseases. Health educators, pharmaceuticals, or zoologists may be available positions. Some scholars may branch out and become environmental law specialists, a job where professionals address wildlife conservation, waste management, and pollution in the courtroom.

Summer courses are held by many colleges and universities worldwide. If you are looking for other options, online classes may be offered. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

This interdisciplinary course puts you at the forefront of these exciting and important developments. We focus on twins to explore the interplay of genes and environment in determining behavior, lifestyle, and health. Uniquely, you will gain hands-on access to the world-renowned Netherlands Twin Register at VU Amsterdam – one of the largest longitudinal databases of its kind. The tutors are scientists closely associated with this core asset, the people who collect the information and work with it on a daily basis to unravel the genetic etiology of a wide range of medical conditions and personal characteristics. They will train you in working with twin data and information from genomics and epigenetics. You will learn how to collect material on behavior and health and how to use molecular data to better understand the path from genetics to medicine. -

Engineering biology employs principles from engineering to dissect and manipulate biological systems. In doing so, it aims to create new products and services through novel technologies to deliver socio-economic benefits to societies around the world. Specifically, engineering biology provides the methodology of developing and testing engineered biological systems. Such methods could be used to design new materials, take care of harmful chemicals, generate energy, supply food, and hence contribute to maintaining and enhancing human health and protecting the environment. -

The enigma of Consciousness is perhaps the most fascinating mystery in the Universe. There are many hypotheses, on the basis of which we try to give an answer to the most difficult problems but, wanting to schematize, all can be traced back to two broad categories: those who consider Consciousness entirely reducible to the electro-chemical-physical processes that take place in the brain, and those who acknowledge that Consciousness has an intrinsic existence, independent, at least in part, from its physical substratum. -

This course invites you to connect your findings with those of your peers and collaborate on research-based projects. This course will present theories and findings from a wide range of disciplines, including various branches of cognitive, social, health, and neuroscience, to gain insight into underlying mechanisms of human processes that can be exploited in human-AI modeling and simulation. The various scientific theories form a factual basis for modeling the processes. We can understand these often adaptive mechanisms through causal relations and causal pathways, which we can model as networks. Using this theoretical framework and the software provided, students can easily simulate a variety of scenarios. -

The Summer School in Osteoarchaeology and Paleopathology is an academic program aimed at training students in anthropological and paleopathological laboratory methods. It is an outstanding opportunity for students to gain experience in bioarchaeological investigation by working side-by-side with leading researchers in the field. The lab activities and lectures will be carried out at the Laboratory of Paleopathology (within the Medical School of Pisa). The Summer School will take place over the course of 3 weeks, in order to provide students with the basic knowledge of skeletal anatomy, physical anthropology, and paleopathology necessary to approach osteological analyses. The skeletal materials under examination include samples from Tuscan excavations dating back to the medieval ages. The activities will be completed under the supervision of the experienced staff of the Division of Paleopathology, with the supervision of Professor Gino Fornaciari. -

The Field School in Medieval Archaeology and Bioarchaeology at Badia Pozzeveri (Lucca, Italy) is an academic program aimed at training students in the archaeological and bioarchaeological field and laboratory methods. Excavations will take place at the church of “San Pietro a Pozzeveri” in the municipality of Altopascio. Badia Pozzeveri is located approximately 10 miles east of the city of Lucca, capital of the Tuscan province of the same name. San Pietro’s church was once part of a Camaldolese monastery, which was founded in the 11th century on the shores of Lake Bientina. -
