Biology Department

The Biology programs are offered as Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science. Within these programs, students can choose a concentration that meets their interest and career goals. For students choosing the Bachelor of Arts program, a choice of either the general biology or exercise science concentrations can be made. For students choosing the Bachelor of Science Program, a choice can be made between concentrations in comprehensive biology or ecology/environmental science.

The major program objectives for Biology majors are:

  • Students will effectively communicate scientific information in both written and oral formats.
  • Students will understand the central role evolution has in the field of science.
  • Students will have a diverse background in the sciences that will help them to achieve their career goals.
  • Students will correlate information learned in their science courses.
  • Students will critically evaluate the validity of scientific claims.
