California Polytechnic University, Pomona
Biology B.S. with Microbiology Option
The Biological Sciences Department incorporates the university`s `learn by doing` philosophy in all of its programs - creating curricula that infuse fieldwork, research and laboratory experiences into its teaching and learning environments.
The Biology major with sub-plans in Botany, General Biology, Microbiology, and Zoology stresses a balance between the theoretical aspects of biology and actual experience in field and laboratory. The variety of courses offered in a flexible curriculum provides an opportunity for a wide range of experience in biological sciences.
The department offers an undergraduate major in biotechnology, which is one of the few available in California and the only one in the CSU. The department also offers a bachelor`s degree in biology (with options in Botany, Microbiology and Zoology) and a new program in environmental biology. Minor degree programs are offered in botany, plant biotechnology, plant pathology, microbiology, and zoology. Interdisciplinary minors are offered in comparative system analysis, environmental health, physiology, and quantitative research. A graduate program is offered leading to a Master of Science degree in Biology. The area of specialization is determined on an individual basis.
