Return to Programs (Majors, Minors, Certificates) Return to: Programs (Majors, Minors, Certificates)

The B.S. major offers undergraduate students a degree program with depth of training in the biological sciences and supporting fields. This program prepares students for immediate entrance into careers in biological sciences or for graduate work (for preparation for teaching high school biology, see biology teaching major). Students may choose a general B.S. degree (no specialization), or a specialization in one of three areas: cell and molecular biology, ecology, or organismal biology (these will be indicated on the student’s transcripts). Students consult with the appropriate biology advisor for approval of their B.S. program and electives, which must be submitted for approval to the biological sciences department at least one academic year preceding graduation. All students in the B.S. biology major must complete all B.S. core requirements, plus additional specific requirements if they choose a specialization. A maximum of 15 credits in BIOL 490 and BIOL 496 may be included in the major. CHEM 181 has a prerequisite of high school chemistry and qualification for MATH 153.
