Why study Biophysics?
Biophysics, a relatively new scientific discipline, is quickly gaining popularity. It was initiated as a remedy to the narrow specialties so typical to the scientific research community of the twentieth century. The need for multidisciplinary solutions produced the idea of biophysics, which brings together knowledge from different fields such as exact sciences, physics, chemistry and mathematics, as well as life sciences and medicine. Biophysics has proven to be an incredibly applicable discipline, due to its original, multidisciplinary solutions. 

Because Biophysics opens a new world of possibilities
A  B.A. in Biophysics opens a whole realm of potential specialties, and enables you to go on and pursue advanced degrees in Biophysics and in life sciences, such as genetics, biology, neurology, ecology, immunology, botany, physiology, biotechnology, biomedical engineering, medical physics, chemistry and more.
A degree in Biophysics paves the way to a rewarding career, due to the growing demand for experts in multidisciplinary sciences in all sectors.
