The mission of the Department of Biology is to provide students with the opportunity to explore the living world of God’s creation, in all its intricacy and diversity, within the tradition of the liberal arts. Our majors will develop an appreciation for biological complexity apparent at the molecular, cellular, organismal, population and ecosystem levels.
The BS in biology is designed for students aiming at graduate or professional schools (including medical school) and requires 62 hours of coursework.
The BA in biology requires 41-42 credit hours of coursework and is ideal for students intending to teach science at the high school level or those desiring a career as a physician's assistant or pre-physical therapist.
