The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree in Biology trains students in the major subject areas of biology while remaining the most flexible of all biology degrees offered. Minimal chemistry and mathematics requirements allow you to substitute a second major, such as computer science, chemistry, psychology, environmental studies, or business. Outstanding students are encouraged to fulfill the requirements for an honors degree.
Because of its flexibility, this degree is ideal for students who wish to pursue a second major, combining the study of biology with another subject area. If you want the flexibility to explore other academic disciplines, wish to teach middle school or high school biology, or desire to work in business, the Biology B.A. degree may be a good option for you.
Be aware that this degree will not automatically fulfill requirements for entrance to medical, dental, or optometry schools, or to most graduate programs in biology.
