Biology Program Concentrations

The Biology department offers a Bachelor of Science and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology. You will be introduced to a wide range of laboratory settings and techniques. Both biology programs prepare you to pursue a traditional graduate biology degree or to enter a graduate school in biomedical science, biotechnology, or allied health and health professions.

Upon completion of the program, you will be prepared to enter the work force in government, the pharmaceutical or chemical industry, EPA, FDA, NIH or other research institutions.
