Biological Sciences (Bachelor of Science Degree)

The Biological Sciences degree program is designed to stimulate intellectual and personal growth through an examination of the fundamental properties of living systems, the application of experimental and descriptive methods of discovery, and the consideration of the social, ethical, and aesthetic aspects of biological knowledge. Both the rigor and flexibility of the program will help students enter employment or post-baccalaureate studies with a competitive advantage, while allowing students to choose an individualized course of study with an emphasis in Ecology and Environment, Cellular and Molecular Biology, or Pre-Professional Studies.
