As a student in the Biology program of Capital University, you'll work with an academic advisor to design a major that best fits your personal goals and needs. You'll also be encouraged to participate in internships and independent studies designed to prepare you for either graduate school or a job after graduation.
What you'll learn
Biology majors take a set of core courses designed to expose them to the major theories and disciplines of biology, including foundations of biology, genetics, microbiology, ecology and cell and molecular biology. All courses include hands-on laboratory components and discovery lab experimentation. Students then build upon this core knowledge by selecting an area of major concentration:
- biochemistry/molecular biology
- zoology/animal science
- ecology/environmental science
- integrated/general biology
Where you'll go: careers and placements
Many graduates of Capital's biology program go on graduate school, pursuing either a master’s or doctoral degree. Preparation for these programs generally involves taking the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) and maintaining at least a 3.0 GPA. Recent graduates are pursuing advanced degrees in immunology, molecular genetics, forensics, wildlife biology, aquatic invertebrates, pharmacy, environmental law, cytogenetics and biochemistry. Others have entered the job market after graduation and are serving in areas such as food microbiology testing, parks and recreation management, teaching, public health and zoo animal handler. Biology majors also pursue options in medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, optometry, environmental science and occupational therapy.
