Biology is the scientific study of growth, function, origin, and evolution of organisms and life and covers a great number of fields including ecology, ecosystems, genetics, anatomy, physiology, cells, botany, animals and plants. Many Bachelor in Biology programs are aimed at being pre-professional, such as pre-medicine, pre-dentistry, pre-ecology, or other scientific disciplines.

Through laboratory and coursework, students earning a Bachelor in Biology learn the skills necessary to become biologists or scientists. Some coursework for Bachelor in Biology programs may focus on human biology including physiology, genetics, and anatomy, while others may focus on ecology, such as conservation, environmental management, and biotechnology. With a Bachelor in Biology, graduates have the option of such jobs as laboratory and research work in the public or private sector, health departments, government, working alongside scientists, teaching, or continuing on to post graduate education.

Bachelor of Science in Biology

The Bachelor of Science in Biology degree is the most versatile of all the majors in the Department of Biology, allowing students to tailor their studies to nearly any career path. This rigorous program provides coursework and skills that students need to prepare for admission to professional health degree programs and graduate school or careers in highly specialized fields in the natural sciences. It has more extensive mathematics, chemistry, and physics course requirements, leaving less room for students to take biology electives or other courses outside the major than does the Bachelor of Arts in Biology.

B.S. Biology students are expected to specialize in a particular area of study, or "concentration," that most closely matches their anticipated career. Four concentrations are available within this major.... [-]

Earning acceptance into the graduate school of your choice feels good. Attending that graduate school free of charge, while also receiving a stipend, may seem too good to be true.

It is true, though, and we have the graduates to prove it. In just the past few years, we've put students into funded Ph.D. programs at prestigious schools like the University of Wisconsin, Michigan Tech University, Rutgers and North Carolina.

"I'm really pleased that our graduates with a passion for biology have had incredible success being accepted by some pretty high-powered programs," says Paul Pickhardt, Lakeland's natural sciences division chair. "If you pursue a masters or Ph.D. in biology, and you're applying to good programs, they will pay you to go to school."... [-]

The curriculum in Biology offers an opportunity for students to understand the structures and processes that characterize life and to appreciate the tremendous diversity of living organisms. Course work is balanced among three scales of biological organization: Cell/Molecular, Physiology/Organismal, and Ecology/Evolution.

An important component of the major is independent research that enables the student to become familiar with the process of science by investigating a specific biological problem in the laboratory or field.

Most courses are extensive rather than intensive in content, thus providing the student with considerable breadth in the biological sciences as a whole. Such training may lead to more specifically focused work such as graduate or professional school, employment in government or industry, or teaching at the secondary or college level. Biologists who are graduates of liberal arts colleges often offer employers a broader, more flexible outlook in approaching problems.... [-]
