Prepare for a career making connections between science and everyday life. As a major of the Biology program at Bellevue University, you will pose questions about the function, growth, and development of complex living organisms to help you uncover biological systems, cells, genes, and other living things through the process of discovery.


Prepare for a career alongside faculty who work in the field.

Many faculty members in the Biology program at Bellevue University have held positions in the field, including with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH). After close interaction with these experts, biology students in the program have gone on to enter MD and DVM programs and work toward their Ph.D.s at research institutions.
