MASTER OF BOTANY

The Department of Biological Sciences (College of Science) offers a Master of Science program in Botany. Only full-time students are admitted to this program. The program is designed to offer research opportunities in Cytogenetics and Chemical Mutations, the effect of the most common drugs on the process of mitosis and the chromosome structure, detection, identification and evaluation of the environmental mutagens and carcinogenesis, ecology, desert ecology, synecology to environmental factors, biotic influence, plant taxonomy, flora of arid regions and flora of Kuwait and the Gulf States. Plant physiology particularly the biochemistry of photosynthesis and related processes and the development and structure of chloroplasts.
According to the University Council decision dated 4/2/2007, Thesis students admitted with effect from September 2007 are exempted from the comprehensive examination.
