Being able to tackle problems from multiple angles and provide innovative solutions with a fresh outlook is what we emphasize throughout your educational journey. 

Biology continues to be a thriving field that offers countless opportunities in many different ways. We study the processes that foster life as well as the patterns that form over time. Then we can predict how things further evolve. FU offers a gamut of classes, including evolutionary biology, general zoology, and human anatomy and physiology to immerse you in the cells that make us up. Studying the field of biology provides a beautiful perspective of the world around us, deepening your understanding of what breathes, what's bacterial, and what needs our help with balance. Whether you're interested in going microscopic with genetics or macro with helping the world, becoming a biologist is a fruitful endeavor to embark on. 

At FU, we have one of the only professional studios in Dumaguete City for broadcast communication students to take advantage of. You gain the industry experience you need to report the news while keeping it fresh and exciting. FU has the only studio students can practice in, especially by getting involved with our iGreyound Studio to create more engaging episodes!

Winston Churchill once said, "Politics is almost as exciting as war, and quite as dangerous. In war, you can be killed only once but in politics, many times." The field of political science is one that assesses how power is exercised in a variety of settings, whether it's through a policy, an individual, or a group. Political science is an extremely versatile field as well; graduates can go into law, politics, education, business, and more due to the nature of the curriculum. At FU, our students learn the politics behind the Philippines, governance around the world, several political theories, and that's just the tip of the iceberg. The journey of a political science major and what they do with it is always an exciting one.
