University Majors


Sonoma State University
Biology B.S.

The Department of Biology offers undergraduates two broadly based bachelor`s degree programs within which there are opportunities for selecting a special concentration. A congenial atmosphere allows students to develop a close relationship with peers, graduate students and faculty. An emphasis is placed on laboratory and field courses to give students practical experience, and on participation in research. The biology curriculum, supported by physical sciences and mathematics, is designed to provide students with a strong background in the principles of biology and their application to current research questions and biological resource management challenges. This combination of breadth and in-depth instruction allows students to develop the intellectual foundations, skills and flexibility needed to deal with the specific biological concerns of today and future needs of the profession. Biology graduates enter careers in many areas including health care, biological and biotechnology research, education, agency positions in parks, recreation, conservation and restoration. Graduates from the department have an outstanding record of acceptance in advanced degree programs in health professions and graduate programs.
