We also offer a Biological Sciences Minor.
Students selecting the Biology Option may tailor their undergraduate program to meet the requirements for employment after earning their B.S. degree, or to continue their education in a graduate or professional school. Their training in biological sciences is integrated with that obtained from courses in related areas such as: chemistry, physics, and mathematics. Those interested may also elect selected courses in engineering and psychology. Electives in biochemistry, biotechnology, cell biology, environmental biology, immunobiology, and molecular biology are available to third and fourth year students. Eligible seniors are encouraged to conduct an original research project under the supervision of a faculty member.
Regardless of the option chosen, all students are given every opportunity to gain valuable hands-on technical training with specialized contemporary techniques such as: electron microscopy, recombinant DNA technology, cell culture, computer applications, and a spectrum of tools widely used in biochemistry.
