Biology Major (BS) and Minor
The biology major offers two emphases:
- Education: Students selecting the education emphasis are planning to teach biology at the secondary level. As part of the student’s capstone experience, they will participate in student teaching.
- General: Students selecting the general emphasis are preparing for careers in field biology, laboratory biology, and the health sciences. As part of the student’s capstone experience, they will work with a faculty member on an independent project, typically a collaborative research project or an internship.
We also offer a biology minor.
Areas of Study
Diversity; anatomy and physiology of animals, plants, and other organisms; genetics; ecology; and evolution are just some of the topics in this multi-faceted major.
