The program options in the Department of Biology provide students with the background required to succeed in a wide variety of fields such as cell and molecular biology, healthcare, environmental science, and education. A core of science courses provides a solid foundation in biology while electives allow students to pursue their special interests. In addition, all biology majors do independent research under the supervision of a faculty mentor during their senior year.
This option is for Pre-health students who are planning to continue their education in medical, dental, veterinary schools, or graduate school. It also will prepare students for entry-level positions requiring more physical science.
This degree provides a biology/education curriculum that imparts a broad base of knowledge about biological processes, principles, and research, so that students have the foundational knowledge they need to educate others.
