Classroom

B.S. in Biology

Degree Overview

The Bachelor of Science in Biology is designed to provide a broad knowledge of science including a strong background in Chemistry, Physics, and Biology. This degree is designed for those interested in pursuing advanced degrees in medicine, dentistry, veterinary science, or certain graduate programs in the natural sciences, as well as for those interested in biotechnology or various other biology-based careers.

A degree in biology will teach students the nature of scientific inquiry, the fundamentals of modern biology (from molecules to ecosystems), and how to put that knowledge into the larger context of the students' lives. The recognition that inquiry is at the heart of science means that we not only strive to teach students biology but we strive to teach students how to be responsible biologists.
