Biology provides insights into living systems from the sub-cellular to the ecosystem level. Students have opportunities to work with faculty on research and intern with private, state, and national agencies.
The Biology major prepares students for careers in cell and molecular biology, biochemistry, plant and animal biology, genetics, physiology, ecology, and field biology.
A curriculum can be developed to prepare for medical, dental, veterinary, agriculture, or other professional schools, or for graduate study. The major also establishes a foundation for interdisciplinary careers in biological resources management, human biology, nutritional sciences, and science communications (technical writing, journalism, and nature interpretation).Learn more »
