The B.S. in Biology is the most popular undergraduate major in the Department of Biology. It requires that students take a broad survey of upper and lower level biology courses in molecular, ecological, animal, and plant areas of study. By carefully selecting courses within each of the required content areas, students can specialize in the topics that interest them most. Often B.S. Biology students minor in Chemistry as well. This degree requires more cognate chemistry, physics and math courses than the B.A. Biology program, but less than the B.S. Biotechnology program.
