Welcome to the Department of Biological Sciences
Our Biological Sciences degree programs givs students a firm foundation for pursuing science related careers, admission to medical and other professional health programs, science teaching and more. Concentrations include Pre-Medicine or Environmental Studies. Students who are not interested in a formal concentration can tailor their upper-level electives to focus on studies such as Botany, Molecular Genetics, Cellular & Microbiology, Ecology or Zoology. On the other hand, students who have a need to maintain a broad background (e.g., students planning to teach high school science) are free to pick from a variety of upper-level Biology electives rather than specialize. Students are encouraged to talk to an academic advisor to determine which upper-level electives best suit their post-graduation and career plans.
