University Majors

California State University, East Bay
Biological Science B.A. - General Biology Option

Biology is concerned with living matter in all its forms, responses, and interactions. It deals with the study of anything which has been or is alive: microbes, all plants, and all animals, including humans. The Science of Biology includes a large number of sub-disciplines such as anatomy, reproduction, development, genetics, ecology, evolution, physiology, systematics, and behavior. A biologist must draw upon a wide variety of academic disciplines to make observations and draw conclusions. A well-trained biologist will have a background in chemistry, mathematics, computer science, statistics, and physics to meet the demands of the present professions.

The Bachelor of Arts major program should be considered by students wishing broad experience in biology as well as specialized course work tailored to their special interests. Students planning careers in education, biological interpretative work, natural history programs, health-related vocations, or seeking generalized biological training may find this program most adaptable to their needs. However, the B.A. degree major in many cases will not provide the required courses for admission to graduate or professional schools.
