We believe that a solid foundation in the life sciences is key to a successful career in the field. That's why our core and auxiliary courses required of all biology majors aim to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the diversity of life and the processes that sustain it.
In addition to the core courses, we offer a range of elective options that allow students to delve deeper into specific subfields within the biological sciences. Whether you're interested in a Bachelor of Science (BS) in general biology, prefer a biomedical specialization, or want an undergraduate degree that prepares you to teach biology in Elementary, Secondary, or Special Education, we have a program that will help you achieve your goals.
