Today's competitive, rapidly changing world requires depth and agility in the workplace. To prepare students to meet these challenges, U.C.O. and the College of Mathematics and Science provides students with opportunities for life-changing intellectual experiences that take place both inside and beyond the classroom. We call this "Transformative Learning." Transformative Learning is a holistic process that places students at the center of their own active and reflective learning experiences.
The Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology provides students with employment opportunities in either the public or private sector. The program of study includes educational and scientific training needed to gain admission to graduate or professional schools.
