The organismal biology specialization allows a student to explore the structure (morphology), function (physiology), development, behavior and taxonomic diversity of animals, plants, fungi and/or microbes. A student looking for a traditional zoology or botany program will be well served by this specialization. The organismal specialization is a good choice for students preparing for graduate study in organismal biology or planning for a career in the health professions, forensics, or state or federal agency work, and it can complement other programs such as teaching, biological anthropology and psychology.
