Point of Pride
The School of Biological Sciences touts a nearly 90 percent acceptance rate for its students who apply to post-baccalaureate programs, such as graduate school, medical school, pharmacy school, or a physician assistant program.
Why study Biology - Physiology, Neuroscience, and Behavior?
Biology is the science of living matter. It involves the study of the structure of evolutionary development and functions of plants, animals, and micro organisms.
The majority of biologists are engaged in research and development. The biological sciences are good preparation for a career in healthcare such as medicine, dentistry, and veterinary science, but professional degrees and licenses are also necessary to practice in these fields.
