Bachelor of Science in Biology
The Bachelor of Science in Biology emphasizes biological principles through courses in cellular, organismal, and ecological studies. A Biology major prepares students for entry-level work in government and laboratories. Students are also prepared to continue their education in graduate or professional schools.
For admission to the major, students must meet the general university requirements and declare the major.
For the major in Biology program, a minimum of 59 semester hours is required, including BIO 121-122,123-124, 150, 349 or 495, 369, and 447.
