Biology

  • The Biology (BIOL) program prepares students for entry into graduate and/or professional schools and for productive careers in the biological sciences. Students are exposed to current trends in the discipline through teaching techniques that focus on generating and interpreting scientific information and developing the ability to think independently and critically.

    Undergraduate students can earn four-year Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degrees in a biomedical and pre-medical/pre-dental track, a general/pre-physical therapy/pre-allied health track, an ecology/organismal biology track, or a biology teaching track ( NSTA accredited).

    The biology non-teaching curriculum consists of 17 semester hours of program core and supportive courses in chemistry and mathematics. Up to 20 credits of program electives are selected by the student based on the student's interest and career goals. Undergraduate research experiences are required for the biomedical and ecology/organismal biology tracks and encouraged for the general track. An additional 42 hours of general education courses provide interdisciplinary skills valued by today's employers.
