The bachelor of science in biology is focused on training in the natural sciences. While providing a strong background in the multifaceted field of biology, students are offered the flexibility to design their own program through upper-level electives. Students may emphasize ecology and the environment, cellular and molecular biology, and/or biomedical sciences. Students will engage in a combination of experiential learning, fieldwork, internships, study abroad opportunities, and senior-year capstone courses that foster interdisciplinary training. Students graduating with this degree will be prepared for admission to pre-health programs (medical, optometry, dental, and veterinary schools) as well as graduate studies.
