Biology, the study of living things, is an exciting and dynamic field that offers many areas of focus. Students may choose to study how life forms function at the molecular, cellular, organismal, or ecological levels. The biological sciences provide opportunities to study viruses, bacteria, fungi, plants, and animals and to investigate the biochemical, physiological, anatomical, behavioral, or ecological processes that make each organism unique.
Students may pursue a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree in biology with four degree concentration options—forensic biology; environmental, evolutionary, and organismal biology (EEOB); cell and molecular biology; and integrative biology—or a Bachelor of Science in biomedical sciences.
