<p>Biology encompasses the scientific study of life. The structure and function of organisms are studied at the molecular, cellular, organismal, population and ecosystems levels.</p> <p>Biologists work in hundreds of fields, including the health sciences, biotechnology and environmental sciences; in government agencies concerned with resource management, environmental quality and medical research; and in educational institutions as teachers and laboratory technicians.</p> <p>The Department of Biology offers&nbsp;undergraduate programs leading to&nbsp;a <strong>Bachelor of Science</strong> (<a href="/cstem/programs/biology/undergraduate-biology-degrees/bs-biology" >BS</a>)&nbsp;and a <strong>Bachelor of &nbsp;Arts in Education</strong> (<a href="/cstem/programs/biology/undergraduate-biology-degrees/bae-biology" >BAE</a>) for Biology. All students are expected to work closely with their faculty advisor to determine their curriculum.</p> <ul> <li>The BS degree is designed for students who require a broad background in biology, along with specialized training that will prepare them for specific careers. The&nbsp;program is based upon a core curriculum to provide the&nbsp;common background. Coursework for specific careers is based on selection of elective courses tailored to&nbsp;career choice.&nbsp; Degree options or advising guides to different career options including:&nbsp;<a href="Documents/CSHE/Biology/PreMedDent(1).pdf">pre-medicine/pre-dentistry</a>, <a href="Documents/CSHE/Biology/2013 Pre Physical Therapy.pdf">pre-physical therapy</a>, <a href="Documents/CSHE/Biology/PhysicianAssistant 13.pdf">pre-physician assistant</a>, <a href="Documents/CSHE/Biology/Pre-Optometry 2013.pdf">pre-optometry</a>, <a href="Documents/CSHE/Biology/2013 Pre Chiropractic Medicine.pdf">pre-chiropractic medicine</a>,&nbsp;<a href="Documents/CSHE/Biology/2012 Med Tech 4(0).pdf">pre-medical&nbsp;laboratory science&nbsp;4+1</a>,&nbsp;<a href="Documents/CSHE/Biology/2012 Med Tech 3(0).pdf">pre-medical&nbsp;laboratory&nbsp;science&nbsp;3+1</a>, <a href="Documents/CSHE/Biology/PrePharm(1).pdf">pre-pharmacy</a>, <a href="Documents/CSHE/Biology/2010 Pre Vet(2).pdf">pre-veterinary medicine</a>, <a href="Documents/CSHE/Biology/2010 Wildlife Biology-Management(2).pdf">wildlife biology</a>,<a href="Documents/CSHE/Biology/2010 Botany_Range advising(2).pdf"> botany/range science&nbsp;</a>are available.&nbsp;</li> <li>If admitted to the University <span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>Fall 2013</strong></span> or later, click on the advising guides here:&nbsp; <a href="Documents/CSTEM/Biology/PreMedDent 2013(0).pdf">pre-medicine/pre-dentistry</a>, <a href="Documents/CSTEM/Biology/2013 Pre Physical Therapy.pdf">pre-physical therapy</a>, <a href="Documents/CSTEM/Biology/2013 Physician Assistant.pdf">pre-physician assistant</a>, <a href="Documents/CSTEM/Biology/Pre-Optometry 2013.pdf">pre-optometry</a>, <a href="Documents/CSTEM/Biology/2013 Pre Chiropractic Medicine.pdf">pre-chiropractic medicine</a>, <a href="Documents/CSTEM/Biology/2013 Med Tech 4.pdf">pre-medical laboratory science 4+1</a>, <a href="Documents/CSTEM/Biology/2013 Med Tech 3.pdf">pre-medical laboratory science 3+1</a>, <a href="Documents/CSTEM/Biology/2013 Pre Pharm Modified.pdf">pre-pharmacy</a>, <a href="Documents/CSTEM/Biology/2013 Pre Vet.pdf">pre-veterinary medicine</a>, <a href="Documents/CSTEM/Biology/2013 Wildlife Biology-Management(0).pdf">wildlife biology</a>, <a href="Documents/CSTEM/Biology/2013 Botany_Range advising.pdf">botany/rance science</a>.</li> <li>The BAE degree prepares students for teaching biology in secondary education.</li> </ul> <p>In coordination with the program in <a href="/cstem/programs/environmental-science" >Environmental Science</a>, the Department of Biology offers an Evironmental Science major with an emphasis in <a href="/cstem/programs/biology/undergraduate-biology-degrees/bs-environmental-science" >Environmental Biology</a>. This major includes a core curriculum that provides students with a broad exposure to biology, chemistry, geology, statistics, and geographic information systems. More focused courses in biology provide students with expertise in their emphasis area. Motivated students have the opportunity to obtain a double major in both environmental science and biology.</p> <p>The Department of Biology offers <a href="/cstem/programs/biology/undergraduate-biology-degrees/biology-minors-and-endorsements-" >minors</a> in biology, health sciences, biology/secondary, and general science/add-on endorsements.</p> <p>The Department of Biology offers a graduate program leading to the <a href="/cstem/programs/biology/ms-biology" ><strong>Master of Science</strong></a> in Biology. The MS degree is based on a core curriculum designed to provide students with the knowledge and tools to address a research question through their masters thesis.
