Biology (BS)

Bachelor of Science


Biology majors develop a strong foundation in biology by exploring cell biology, genetics, molecular biology, chemistry, evolutionary theory, scientific methodology, and laboratory techniques in our core curriculum.  Students then have the opportunity to tailor their degree with various electives including immunology, microbiology, human anatomy and physiology, and human gross anatomy, in which students have access to a human cadaver lab.  The coursework pushes students to sharpen their critical thinking, scientific reasoning, and laboratory skills.  Students in the Bachelor of Science program are also required to participate in relevant research experiences on campus.
