Glimpses into the molecular basis for life have caused biology to grow in scope in recent years, and opportunities in this field are also growing.
Providing knowledge that students will need about biology in the 21st century is a goal for the biology department.
Biology prepares students for entrance into professional schools, such as medicine, dentistry or optometry; entrance into graduate school in biological fields; teaching careers in middle and secondary schools; and research and application of biology in industry positions.
The biology department offers a variety of bachelor’s degree programs. Students majoring in biology may complete the professional major leading to a Bachelor of Science degree; the biology teaching program leading to a Bachelor of Science degree; or the liberal arts major in biology leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree. Huntington University also has a very strong pre-med program. You also have the option of pursuing a minor in environmental science.
