The biology program provides diverse training for careers in the biological sciences.

The biology curriculum includes content courses required for (1) teacher certification in life science, (2) acceptance to post-graduate studies, and (3) pre-professional studies in preparation for admission to professional schools.

Student Learning Outcomes
Students will:

  • Possess a broad understanding of biology.
  • Understand the scientific method and use it to develop and conduct biological experiments.
  • Have the skills necessary to successfully communicate biological information to a range of audiences.
  • The Honors Program

The Honors Program (admission by application only) offers highly motivated students from any academic discipline an enriched program of study in which to develop global perspectives. Appropriate courses approved by both a student’s Biology faculty mentor and Honors advisor may count toward the Biology degree. Thus, a Biology student in the Honors track can usually graduate with no additional course work. For more information, consult the section entitled “Honors Program” near the front of this catalog.
