Department Of Life Sciences

The Department of Life Sciences is one of the five departments in the Faculty of Science Technology and Environmental studies (FSTES) of the Open University of Tanzania. The impact of life sciences cannot be overestimated. Rapid developments in the disciplines of Molecular Biology (particularly Genomics and Proteomics) and organism Biology (especially related to invasive species and eco-system level changes) make compelling cases for the need to understand life sciences and its potential societal impacts. At the Open University of Tanzania, the Life Science Department aims to educated informed citizens, biologists, future teachers, and the next generation of biomedical researchers and practitioners. The department offers the following programmes: Bachelor of Science General (B.Sc. Gen), Bachelor of Science with education (B.Sc. Ed.), Postgraduate programmes and Non degrees courses (certificate and diploma courses in poultry production and health). For further details on the programmes and how to join us please read the University prospectus and/or visit us at the Open University of Tanzania HQ in Dar es Salaam.
