The B.S. in Biology is designed for pre-professional majors (pre-med, pre-dental, pre-optometry, pre-physical therapy, pre-occupational therapy, medical technology, etc.) or for students who plan to go on to graduate school or to work with environmental opportunities (parks, water testing, etc.). This program is also designed for biology education majors.
Opportunities for academic involvement include membership in the Beta Iota Omicron (BIO) Club or the American Chemical Society (ACS). There are also undergraduate research opportunities for students through the Undergraduate Research Experience.
For more information please contact Dr. Brian Butterfield, Chair of the Department of Biological, Physical, and Human Sciences Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
