Biological Sciences B.S. Concentration in General Biology
Biological Sciences: Biological Sciences includes all aspects of the scientific study of life. The structure, function, and behavior of organisms are studied at the molecular, cellular, organismal, and environmental levels.
The Bachelor of Arts program provides a broad background in biological sciences with coverage of the principal fundamental areas of biology. The program, supplemented with three geoscience courses, satisfies the minimum requirements for subject matter program competency leading to a teaching credential. With additional course work in chemistry and mathematics and appropriate selection of courses in the General Education Program, the BA also satisfies minimum requirements for admission to professional schools in dentistry, human medicine, veterinary medicine, and other allied health fields.
The Bachelor of Science programs provide the necessary preparation for post baccalaureate work, and are the preferred degree programs for students pursuing careers in biology, teaching, and the health sciences.
