Biology is a full-time multidisciplinary program that provides intensive study in biological sciences. The program equips students with broad training in biology while providing enough flexibility to specialize in particular sub-disciplines. This major prepares students for careers in education, allied health professions and interdisciplinary fields such as environmental or biotechnology, law, science, journalism, bioscience management, etc. The curriculum and degree are interdisciplinary in nature and open a broader approach to biology for students.

A major in biology allows students to explore various aspects of our natural world. Students may pursue careers in biotechnology, medicine, environmental studies, human and veterinary medicine, scientific research & development, environmental monitoring & regulation, and private design & consulting.

Students must undergo a pre-graduation internship and defend a graduation thesis in order to receive a degree.
