Bachelor of Science in Biology


Biology is the science that studies life. Fields range from cell biology and genetics to evolution, plant science, and ecology. Careers are applied, using biological knowledge to address problems in society and industry, while others are focused on research, advancing knowledge to produce new solutions. The B.S. in Biology degree provides a stronger background in science and math than the B.A. degree and will better prepare students for research-oriented careers as professional biologists and medical professionals. The degree may also serve as a terminal degree for a variety of biology professions.
