Degrees & Programs
The Biology Department offers two majors in biology, one leading to the Bachelor of Science degree and the second leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree.
The major leading to the Bachelor of Science degree consists of a group of five core courses and the choice of one of three possible tracks in general biology, ecology or pre-professional studies. The general track is suited for students who wish to explore within the major, have interest in graduate school or desire to teach at the secondary level. The ecology track will allow students to focus on ecological studies, environmental issues or organismal biology. The preprofessional track is designed for students interested in medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine or allied health fields such as physician assistant, physical therapy or other clinically related professions.
