Many students choose to pursue a degree in biology in order to gain an expert level of knowledge and laboratory experience in cells and organisms and their environments. This expertise can then be applied to further specialization in graduate studies, leading to careers in the health sciences and experimental research.

What is a BSc in Biology?  This Bachelor of Science is an undergraduate degree that imparts a foundation of information about botany, zoology, and ecology as well as molecular and cell biology and microbiology. Students attend classes and labs, gaining valuable knowledge regarding organisms. A BSc can serve as a terminal degree to enter research and laboratory careers or be used as a preparation for graduate work in the biological sciences.

Courses such as organismal and cell biology, genetics, and chemistry, along with their associated laboratory work, make up the knowledge base that students will build on as they continue their degree and begin to focus their studies. Students will choose an area of specialization and tailor their final coursework toward this focus in areas such as field botany or microbiology, developing expertise that will give them an advantage in graduate school applications or fieldwork.

The length of time it takes to complete this degree will vary depending on the different requirements of individual schools, and as a result, the cost varies across institutions. Prospective students should check with each institution to get an idea of the cost in time and tuition payments that will be required to complete the degree.

The knowledge and laboratory experience gained will be invaluable to students interested in continuing graduate work in biology, helping them to move on to careers in education, scientific research industries, laboratory work, and government positions. Students who earn this degree are well prepared for careers in medicine, as the degree provides them the path to graduate school and the background necessary to apply to medical, dental, and veterinary schools.

Prospective students can find an institution where they may pursue a degree by searching our extensive database of schools. Information on each school can then be used to compare course requirements, settings, and total cost to the individual student’s needs and career goals.
