Program Description

Biology is the study of living organisms and vital processes. Biologists investigate the structure, function, hereditary, and evolution of all living things – microorganisms, fungi, plants, and animals. These life forms are studied at all levels: molecule, cell, organism, and population. Through lab work and field work, biology majors acquire a basic understanding of organisms, their habitats, and the processes that govern their life activities.

The Department of Biology at Mansfield University of Pennsylvania offers the Bachelor of Science degree in Biology with optional concentrations in Cell and Molecular Biology, Environmental Biology, Fisheries, and Medical Laboratory Sciences. Students may also choose to complete the general Biology degree without a concentration. A feature of all Biology curricula (with the exception of Medical Laboratory Sciences) is the requirement to complete an undergraduate research project.

All concentrations meet the minimum requirements for medical schools. Many Biology graduates become technicians in hospitals and research laboratories. Others go into sales positions with medical and pharmaceutical supply companies, while still others find employment in the environmental and ecological fields. Those students preparing for a career in medicine may meet the minimum requirements for medical, dental, chiropractic, veterinary, and physical therapy schools with proper course selection.... [-]
