The Department of Biological Sciences provides curricula leading to a Bachelor of Science or a Bachelor of Arts in Biological Sciences. In addition, the Department cooperates with the Department of Chemistry in offering a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry-Biology.

The program of studies is sufficiently flexible to prepare students to pursue careers in cell and molecular biology, botany, microbiology, physiology or zoology as graduate students.

Programs in the department also prepare students for professional fields such as dentistry, medicine, pharmacy, medical technology, nursing or physical therapy.

No matter what career objective, the student will be exposed to the major areas of the biological sciences, and thus will be able to make an intelligent choice of specialization in post-baccalaureate study.

Preparation for admission to the undergraduate program should include high school work in algebra, geometry, trigonometry, biology, chemistry and physics.
