About this Program

The Biology major offers a core program intended to develop a common background in biology and additional upper level courses designed to provide specialized options. Students typically take a broad based general biology major or an emphasis in one of the following 8 areas: general biology, cytotechnology, ecology, human biology, microbiology, physiology, plant science, toxicology, or zoology. The Department of Biological Sciences also supports Bachelor of Science (B.S.) programs in Biotechnology, Clinical Laboratory Sciences/Medical Technology, Environmental Science, Food Science Technology, and Science Education.
Biology majors are appropriate options for students planning to pursue medical school, physical therapy, veterinary school, or other science-based professional programs.
