Careers

The B.S. in biology is a major gateway to the healing professions such as medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine and public health. It also provides the solid foundation for graduate study in the specialized fields of anatomy, botany, biotechnology, physiology, microbiology, neuroscience, zoology, ecology and environmental science. Our new curriculum allows students to include research as part of their undergraduate experience. The B.S. degree prepares one for technical work in biotechnology without further training. The B.S. or B.A. in biology may also be an excellent preparation for law. The B.S. in natural science leads to a secondary teaching career in science, and is offered with either a biology, chemistry or physics emphasis.
