Bachelor of Science
The B.S. program is designed to meet the needs of students interested in pursuing graduate study or research in the biological sciences, or careers in the health professions or other science-related fields.
In addition to the College’s general degree requirements, the courses required for the B.S. degree are two semesters of General Biology, General Chemistry, Calculus*, Organic Chemistry, General Physics, and one semester of Introduction to Cell and Molecular Genetics, plus five (5) additional biology courses, of which three (3) must be laboratory courses (i.e., 4 credit hours).
It is strongly recommended that students in the B.S. program participate in some form of experiential education, e.g., internships, research (on- or off-campus), or attend a field school for at least one summer.
*Please Note: Students placed in MTH 110 or MTH 132 upon matriculation should satisfy their second Math course with MTH 218.
