Study Living Organisms
Biology provides a broad perspective in the biological sciences. You can tailor your studies to match your interests in health sciences, animal or plant physiology, cell and molecular biology, ecology or environmental studies, or evolution and systematics. This degree is designed for students who wish to take more courses outside of the natural sciences.

Curriculum and Courses
The courses you choose will open up a wealth of career opportunities — not lock you into one occupation. You’ll extend your education way beyond the classroom to every area of your life.
There are many options available to Biology majors. A partial list would include admission to pre-professional schools (medical, dental, veterinary, physical therapy, etc.), graduate studies, or immediate employment as a naturalist, park technician, assistant pathologist, lab technician, technical sales representative, research technician, museum curator, fisheries manager, environmental planner, municipal zookeeper, environmental impact analyst, or high school biology teacher.
