BS Biology

Our Bachelor of Science in Biology program is designed for students interested in some aspect of the living world (animals, plants, microbes), specific areas of biology (neurobiology, animal behavior, ecology, molecular biology, teaching biology), and numerous other fields of biology. The B.S. in Biology is a highly-structured program that requires 6-7 core biology courses including the capstone Biology Seminar. An additional 3 upper-level biology electives are required. Students with a minimum GPA of 3.0 (4.0 scale) are encouraged to conduct an Independent Study project under the guidance of one of our faculty and to present their findings in a college-wide seminar. Students are also encouraged to pursue a concentration within the major, general biology, ecology or physiology behavior. Co-requirements of the B.S. in Biology include physics (2 semesters), general chemistry (2 semesters), organic chemistry (2 semesters), and math through Calculus I followed by Calculus II or statistics. Junior and senior biology majors may take graduate biology courses, at the 500 level, with at least a 3.0 GPA and permission of the instructor and the department chairperson.
