Bachelor of Science in Biology Pre-Professional Track
The School of Science and Mathematics offers a program of study leading to a B.S. degree with a major in Biology. There are two tracks within the biology degree: a general track and a pre-professional track. The general track will prepare students for graduate school and work as biologists. Biologists are involved in research which seeks to discover ways of curing disease, eliminating famine, minimizing man’s effect on the climate, increasing life expectancy, and utilizing biological knowledge and understanding to improve our lives while at the same time protecting the environment. Consequently, biologists are employed by governmental agencies, the military, and private industry in such diverse fields as agriculture, wildlife biology, genetics, pharmaceuticals, law, and many others. The pre-professional track is designed for students interested in pursuing professional education in medicine, veterinary medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, optometry, forensic science, and other clinically related fields.
