Undergraduate studies

The undergraduate programs in biology provide excellent preparation for graduate or professional school programs and for careers in industry and governmental agencies. Students who graduate from these programs are well prepared for medical, dental, or veterinary schools, or to enter the many specialized graduate programs in the biological sciences.

Increasingly, career opportunities are opening up in the developing fields of biotechnology, both in industry and government. Elective sequences of courses in areas of biotechnology within the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees in biology are an excellent preparation for such careers.
