Course DescriptionBA in Biology is designed to give students a comprehensive understanding of biology and a strong liberal arts foundation. It is appropriate for students planning to pursue graduate studies in another area, such as business, K-12 education, engineering or law. The BA requires a minimum of 36 semester hours in biology.
The biology department offers the following five specialized study tracks for students who have predetermined specific study and career goals: Cell and Molecular Biology; Ecology and Evolution; Marine Biology; Pre-Medical, Pre-Dental and Pre-Vetinary Studies; and Secondary Education. Required courses and other suggested courses for each track are given below. Students must plan their specific schedules in consultation with their biology adviser. Please note that these study tracks do not constitute separate degrees; they are courses of study within the BA and BS majors in biology.
