Division of Science and Mathematics
  • Program Type: Undergraduate minor related to major
  • Requirements for this program are current for Fall 2014
  • Required credits in this minor: 27 to 28
Objectives--The biology curriculum is designed to provide students with biological knowledge and to develop scientific skills as part of their liberal arts education. These skills include the ability to conduct and interpret scientific research and successfully communicate scientific information both verbally and in writing. The faculty believe these objectives can best be attained through a balanced core curriculum in biology and a diverse array of elective coursework, both of which include active lab and field experiences. The biology major prepares students for graduate or professional programs and for careers such as secondary biology education, government service, or private sector employment.
Program Delivery
This program is available:
  • via classroom (the majority of instruction is face-to-face)
Minor Requirements
