The Biology (B.A.) Program is designed for students seeking to go to medical school or to pursue research in biology with the flexibility in choosing your classes and includes a minor area and a foreign language.

 

The career potential for graduates with a B.A. degree in Biology is very large. If a student does not wish to pursue further education after the college degree, there are jobs available as technical assistants for biotech, academic, or government positions.  Alternatively, when combined with a teaching certificate, biology graduates are prepared to teach high school biology. Another career option for biology graduates is to pursue further education in the form of graduate school. A.B.A. in Biology is an excellent entry point for many non-thesis, science-related master's degrees that prepare students to work in industry or government. Such students can become specialists in product development or testing, resource management, or resource policy to name a few.
