Undergraduate Programs in Biology


The course of study for students majoring in biology is fairly structured. In their first and second year, students take basic courses in science, mathematics, and English. During their junior and senior years, students can choose upper-level biology electives that are of interest to them and will prepare them for different types of careers in biology.

Most of the college and general education distribution requirements are taken in the junior and senior years. Students should consult with their faculty advisor in planning their course schedules each semester. An appointment with the advisor is necessary before students can register for courses.
