Introduction

The Department of Biology offers students a wide selection of stimulating courses catering to degrees in biology, marine science-biology, marine science-chemistry, biology-business, and environmental science.

Students studying any of the biological fields are presented with many experiential learning opportunities inside and outside the classroom, including:

  • Rigorous laboratory exercises
  • Class field trips
  • Weekend excursions to places like the Florida Keys and Everglades National Park
  • International travel opportunities
  • Semester-long study abroad programs

Bachelor of Science in Biology: This broad but intensive program can be tailored to fit nearly any career path, including preparation for governmental or private sector employment in the field or in the lab, as well as preparation for graduate studies and acceptance to degree programs in health-related fields. Four concentrations are available in this degree program: general biology, molecular biology, pre-professional biology, and biology-business.

Bachelor of Arts in Biology: Recently added to the list of degrees offered at UT, the Bachelor of Arts in biology is similar to the Bachelor of Science in biology, but allows additional flexibility for students preparing for a career or graduate program that relies less on courses in chemistry and physics. Two concentrations are available in this degree program: general biology and organismal and evolutionary biology.

Minor in Biology: A valuable addition to the degree programs of students pursuing degrees that require a basic knowledge of the natural world, such as chemistry, physics, psychology, exercise science, and any other degree that might be strengthened by a general knowledge of biological principles.

Practical Experience

Students studying any of the biological fields are presented with many experiential learning opportunities inside and outside the classroom, including rigorous laboratory exercises and field trips to places like the Florida Keys and Everglades National Park. Students are also encouraged to participate in international travel courses or semester-long study abroad programs. Students recently participated in faculty-led travel courses to Costa Rica to study tropical ecosystems and to Honduras to study coral reef ecosystems.

The University maintains a formal affiliation with the Gulf Coast Research Laboratory (GCRL), an educational and research institute located in Ocean Springs, MS. This arrangement allows students to take field courses in marine science at GCRL during the summer. Course credit is awarded through the University of Southern Mississippi and is accepted at UT as transfer credit.
