The Department of Biology offers two degrees, the Bachelor of Science in Biology and the Bachelor of Arts in Biology. In addition, the department offers a minor in biology and two concentrations in medical technology and cell and molecular biology. Supportive courses associated with paramedical studies and criminalistics, as well as general courses for enrichment of the non-science student's background, are offered by the department.
Students seeking teacher licensure, either elementary or secondary, should see an advisor in the biology department, as well as in the teacher education program.
Students interested in preparation for medical school or other health professions should contact the biology department for specialized advising. A senior exit exam, The Major Field Test, must be taken during the semester of anticipated graduation. The biology department's main office is located in the Science Building, Room 2042, 303-615-0777.
