Students electing Biology as an area of concentration can pursue either a Traditional Option or a Terrestrial Ecology Option. Students may also obtain certification in Medical Technology.
The Traditional Option is designed to prepare students for graduate work in the biological sciences or for study in professional fields such as medicine, dentistry, optometry, physical therapy, and other health-related areas. This would also include those students who wish to pursue a Medical Technology certification (see below).
The Terrestrial Ecology Option is designed to prepare the student for a leadership role in evaluating the quality of the environment and in dealing with the complexities surrounding its preservation.
Although there are required courses in biology, mathematics, chemistry, and physics, the upper level of both biology tracks is designed by the student, with advisement, to reflect his/her interests and needs. Both options require 24 credits in biology including at least three laboratory or field courses beyond the freshman year.
