Genetics is the study of genes and inheritance. It's fun, interesting, challenging, and relevant to your everyday life!
Genetics is a very diverse subject - you learn about a wide variety of things ranging from the molecular basis of life to the study of whole organisms, populations, and evolution. You will be able to make informed decisions about topics such as genetic engineering, cloning and even your own health.
Genetics is also a marketable, valuable, and desirable subject that complements other interesting areas including those in science, commerce, law, and humanities.
