During the freshman and sophomore years, Marymount California University students build an educational foundation that prepares them for their upper division studies. Within the Biology program, this foundation includes completing requirements in Biology, Chemistry and Physics.


A Bachelor of Arts in Biology or a Liberal Arts degree at Marymount California University with an emphasis in biology covers fundamental areas of biological science and the basic principles of chemistry as they relate to biology. 

Students who are interested in careers in teaching biology or health care administration may pursue the Bachelor of Arts in biology or a Multidisciplinary Studies degree and take additional classes in business, health care administration and leadership. In many cases, students who attain a BA in Biology continue their education in physical therapy, medicine, dentistry or other health care professions.
