Our Programs

The BS program in biology provides an excellent platform for careers in biotechnology and biomedical sciences, health sciences, environmental assessment and management, or education. It also builds a foundation for pre-health professional students, including those interested in pre-med, pre-vet, pre-dental or any other medical profession.

We also offer MS and PhD programs in interdisciplinary bioscience and biotechnology. Students in the graduate program focus on one of four areas: molecular bioscience & biotechnology; biomedical sciences & neuroscience; computational biology & bioinformatics; or ecology, evolution & the environment.
