Biology

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.

The Biology program provides insights into living systems from the sub-cellular level to the ecosystem level. The Biology major prepares students for careers in cell and molecular biology, biochemistry, plant and animal biology, genetics, physiology, ecology, and field biology. [+]

The Biology program provides insights into living systems from the sub-cellular level to the ecosystem level. The Biology major prepares students for careers in cell and molecular biology, biochemistry, plant and animal biology, genetics, physiology, ecology, and field biology. A curriculum can be developed to prepare for medical, dental, veterinary, agriculture, or other professional schools, or for graduate study. The major also establishes a foundation for interdisciplinary careers in biological resources management, human biology, nutritional sciences, and science communications (technical writing, journalism, and nature interpretation). Biology graduates are employed in industry (pharmaceuticals, paper making, food processing, hospitals and clinics, agriculture, and others); government agencies (Environmental Protection Agency, Food and Drug Administration, Fish and Wildlife Service, Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, Department of Agriculture, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources); environmental consulting firms; and educational institutions. About 40 percent of Biology graduates pursue advanced degrees in graduate and professional schools. Biology majors must combine their studies with an interdisciplinary minor. Human Biology is the minor commonly chosen by Biology majors with interests in health sciences or exercise science. Students interested in ecology, biodiversity, and management of biological resources such as wildlife, forests, and fisheries, typically take a minor in Environmental Science. Other interdisciplinary areas that may be useful, depending upon a student's career goals, include Business Administration and Environmental Policy and Planning. Students who prefer a Biology minor (rather than a major), coupled with an interdisciplinary major, might consider majors in Environmental Science or Human Biology. Students in Education who desire... [-]
