It features more extensive requirements in chemistry, mathematics, and physics than the Biology B.A.degree, with courses selected to optimize your future opportunities. Outstanding students areencouraged to fulfill the requirements for an honors degree.
The Biology B.S. includes significant coursework in inorganic and organic chemistry, physics and math, preparingyou for graduate and professional programs. Many Biology B.S. majors participate in independent research with faculty members.
You may choose to do a general Biology B.S. degree or you can select one of three areas of concentration, through which you gain a deep and coherent education in a particular field:
