Biology (BIOL)

two girls bio croppedThe curriculum in biology includes courses for students planning a major in the field as well as for those who pursue other majors. The General Biology I & II courses are for any student, major or non-major.

Advanced courses are designed to meet requirements of the major. However, any student with the proper background and prerequisites may choose to enroll in any of them. Students study and work in well-equipped undergraduate laboratories.

The major in biology prepares a student for graduate school or for employment as a technician or salesperson with a corporation in a biologically related field.

The biology major (like chemistry) is one that may be pursued by pre-professional students who are interested in medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, optometry or the various technologies related to the delivery of health care (medical technology, cytotechnology, physician's assistant, etc.). In all of these areas, the completion of the bachelor's degree in biology must be followed by admission to, and successful completion of, appropriate professional studies and training.

The forensic science concentration prepares students for graduate studies in forensic science or a position in a forensic science laboratory. The curriculum is designed to give students a background in molecular biology, analytical chemistry and statistical analysis.
