About

The Biology (and Pre-Med) program of The University of Akron studies the fastest-growing field of science today — its impact is carried to many fronts — medicine and health care; the environment and climate changes; global population and food sources.

Overview

Biology Fundamentals

The core courses of the Biology (and Pre-Med) program of The University of Akron provide the fundamentals of modern biology (e.g., principles of biology, evolution, ecology, cell and molecular biology, genetics)

You can earn a bachelor's of science degree with a major in biology or natural sciences, and within these programs you will be able to choose such courses as:

  • pre-med track
  • human anatomy
  • neurobiology
  • biomimicry

Degrees and Preparation

A degree in biology paves the way to many careers in research and development, especially in such areas as medicine, health care and biotechnology. Entry-level positions in biology require at least a bachelor’s degree; research positions typically require an M.S. or Ph.D. degree.

Integrated Approach to Experimentation

We cross boundaries between traditional disciplines, from the cellular to the ecosystem level, and our Integrated Bioscience and Biomimicry programs underscore our broad approach to the study of biology. Through these programs, our students examine bio-based problems using techniques and ideas drawn from chemistry, engineering, geosciences, computer science and more. This cutting-edge approach to research also forms the basis for much of our teaching, as many courses offer hands-on training and a multidisciplinary methodology.

Our Faculty 

  • are innovative and interactive in both the classroom and laboratory environment
  • have been recognized with numerous teaching awards
  • use multimedia technology, inquiry-based teaching and research experiences to enhance classroom learning

Career Outlook

  • Opportunities are expected to grow for biologists, especially in drug research, development, testing and manufacturing industries.
  • Graduates with experience in industry through academic laboratories, internships, fellowships or co-ops stand out among job seekers.
