Bachelor of Science in Biology: Life Sciences Concentration
The Life Sciences Concentration could be called the "traditional" Biology major. It is recommended for students who aspire to become professional biologists. We also recommend this concentration for students who aspire to become physicians, veterinarians or dentists. This concentration includes the four-semester Biology core curriculum, the two-semester research requirement, upper division course work of the student’s choice, and appropriate coursework in Chemistry.
Students who complete the Life Sciences Concentration can put their bachelor's degrees to work straight away as technicians or research associates in academic or industrial settings. Life Science students are also ideally prepared for admission into graduate programs in Biology where they can pursue advanced degrees, particularly the Ph.D. degree, and eventually become professional scientists in charge of research programs, or college or university professors.
The Life Science Concentration is the recommended curriculum for Pre-Med, Pre-Vet and Pre-Dentistry because admission committees at these schools are looking for the course mix and level of rigor that goes with this curriculum.
Some Biology students conduct research on Toxoplasma gondii, a single-celled parasite that causes disease in humans and farm animals.
