The Department of Biological Sciences offers a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Biology that allows students to pursue one of the following options:
An accelerated five-year course of study leading to the BS in Biology and MS in Biological Sciences is available to full-time students who have a grade-point average of 3.0 or above at the end of their junior year. Interested students, after evaluation and acceptance by the department’s graduate selection committee, meet with the graduate coordinator to design a plan for completion of requirements for both degrees within a five-year time frame.
