Course Code:


Biomedical Sciences & Environment.



Traditional: classroom

Biomedicine -Based Environmental Classes

Distance: Internet/CD



approx. 150 hrs



This course aims to provide students with fundamental knowledge of biomedical sciences and environment for a peaceful and prosperous life.

Contents of the course include: function of biomedical science, environmental parameters for a better and peaceful life.

*Short Structural Outline: 

The syllabus is composed of practical science for the enquiring the needed environmental peace science (includes biomedical issues), which constitutes approximately 70% of the syllabus, and the political, social and economic aspects, which constitutes the remaining 30%.

The syllabus consists of three units:

Unit One: Biology – The Study of Life

Unit Two: Biomedicine and clinical aspects of the environmental peace.

Unit Three: The parameters deteriorate the environmental peace.


The learning outcomes associated with the units of study are presented in four columns:

  • Sub-units and topics of the environmental peace
  • Depth of treatment to the deteriorated environmental peace
  • Contemporary issues and technology for a better environmental peace
  • Practical activities of activists for peaceful environment.


The sequence in which the syllabus is presented does not imply any particular order of teaching.


*Textbooks and Reading List:

For bio majors, hands down, it’s Campbell’s Biology. Good, accurate explanations of everything, very comprehensive in topics included, good organization, good figures but not so many that it turns into a picture book instead of a text book.

And “Life: The Science of Biology” by Sadava & all. Also Alberts – Molecular Biology of the Cell from cover to cover. Written by David Nelson, the Principles of Biochemistry is a good book for all students of biology and chemistry.

The Creation: An Appeal to Save Life on Earth, E.O. Wilson.

Silent Spring, Rachel Carson. Song for a Blue Ocean
Carl Safina.



*Cost: Available upon request
