David Chalcraft, Interim Chair

The Department of Biology offers a BS in biochemistry and a BS in biology. The BS in biochemistry provides two areas of concentration - biology and chemistry. The BS in biology provides three areas of concentration -  ecology/evolution, general biology, and molecular/cell biology.

The goals of our BS degrees are to: prepare our students with the knowledge and confidence to apply the scientific method in biochemical and biological research; train our students to communicate scientific discoveries in standard scientific formats; educate our students so they understand, and are able to apply, foundational biochemical and biological concepts necessary for graduate education or a career in the biochemical and biological sciences.

Admission Requirements

In order to declare a major in biochemistry or biology, a student must satisfy general education requirements as stated in the catalog for transfer to departments in the Thomas Harriot College of Arts and Sciences and must have a minimum cumulative 2.0 GPA in all biology and chemistry courses below the 3000-level.
