A computational life sciences graduate certificate focuses on using data to understand biological systems and relationships. Big data can be a challenge for many students and this certificate aims to fill that gap.
New and diverse data types are emerging in the life sciences. After completing this certificate, you’ll understand these new life sciences data formats, be able to discuss the ethical implications of biological data, and apply computational tools to life sciences data.
Pre-veterinary medicine is an undergraduate program that prepares students for admission to veterinary school and a career in veterinary medicine or animal science.
At Arizona State University, our preveterinary medicine program is a concentration in our applied biological sciences degree. The program’s coursework provides a strong foundation in biology, chemistry, physics, math and animal science. It also offers specialized courses in veterinary medicine and opportunities to gain clinical hours or animal experience through internships and study abroad programs.
A neuroscience degree is an academic program focused on the study of the brain and nervous system, which are two of the most complex biological structures that exist. As a student in the program, you’ll have the opportunity to analyze behavior, thoughts, consciousness and emotion in relation to the nervous system.
This exciting online bachelor’s degree in biological science is the first-of-its-kind to integrate three related areas of life science research: genetics, cell and developmental biology. Genetics is the study of genes and the science of heredity, or traits passed down from one generation to the next. Cell biology is the study of cells – the smallest units of life – and their structures and functions. Cell biology is important because it explains how all living things, including people, animals and plants, live.
The master’s in user experience online program addresses UX research, design, content development, communication, tone of voice and evaluation of all interfaces, components and products with which end users interact. This includes hardware and software user interfaces, informational products, identifying user needs, tasks, procedures, capabilities and limitations when using technology and interacting with information.
Examples of interfaces you’ll learn to optimize UX for include:
Instructional design is essentially the creation of instructional plans and materials. It combines education, psychology and communication to create effective teaching plans and learning solutions for specific groups of learners.
Performance improvement identifies gaps in the performance of individuals, teams or organizations and finds ways to improve knowledge and skills in ways that close those gaps while improving performance and efficiency.
You should earn a master’s degree in integrated health care because the practice has a high demand for qualified leaders who can ensure the success of integrated care programs. This is especially true in primary care clinics, hospitals and within mental health and substance abuse treatment programs. Students learn the basics of health care management and how to manage interdisciplinary teams.
In this innovation in society program, you’ll learn how to think critically about innovation, apply foresight methods to access emerging trends, engage critically with experts, compare local and global forces that shape innovation and evaluate consequences for equity and justice. To be successful in this program, you should be passionate about gaining the skills and knowledge needed to make a difference in the world.
The BS in innovation in society is designed to cultivate the critical thinking skills needed to develop creative strategies that steer innovations toward the needs and values of society. These needs could include cultivating solutions to:
- Breakdowns of Western democracy.
- Pandemics and vaccine distribution.
- The effects of climate change.
You’ll be trained to synthesize research and theory from the social sciences, humanities, natural sciences and engineering so you can develop proposals for how to build better futures.
