Interested in professional schools? The Health Professions Advisory Committee helps you get there
The department offers three concentrations leading to a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in biological sciences and two leading to the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree:
- The B.S. health professions concentration is most appropriate for students interested in animal structure and function as related to medical treatment.
- The B.S. molecular biology concentration is most appropriate for students interested in the molecular and cellular regulation of life.
- The B.S. neurobiology concentration is most appropriate for students interested in the intersection of biology and psychology.
- The B.A. biological education concentration is most appropriate for those students interested in teaching biological content to K-12 students.
- The B.A. in biological sciences is most appropriate for those students who do not wish to focus on the above concentrations or who might like to pursue a double major.
