The biology program produces biologists with the chemistry, mathematics, and physics background needed to solve biotechnological problems in the coming decades. The program also offers rare senior thesis opportunities. Those students wishing to strengthen their engineering skills can earn the area minor in Biomedical Engineering. Other students may choose to pursue a second major in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. The Biology program will prepare graduates for professional careers in government and industrial research laboratories, and in the biotechnology and health-related industries.
Those wishing to continue their studies in graduate or health professions programs will be exceptionally well qualified to do so.
