Students majoring in biology gain a broad understanding of the fundamental nature and characteristics of living things and the ways in which they interact. Their studies cover the full range of life sciences, from cancer genes to acid rain, and from lichens to marine mammals. The biology B.S. program prepares students for study in a broad spectrum of biological sciences, professional training programs in the health sciences, careers in teaching, and entry-level scientist positions in industry, government agencies, and universities. All students in baccalaureate degree programs are required to complete general University and college requirements including writing and liberal education courses. For more information about University-wide requirements, see the liberal education requirements. Required courses for the major, minor or certificate in which a student receives a D grade (with or without plus or minus) do not count toward the major, minor or certificate (including transfer courses).
