|Faculty:||Natural Sciences and Mathematics
|Field of Study:||Biology/Biological Sciences, General
|Description:||Biology is the study of life. We address questions as minuscule as the factors controlling the expression of a single gene, to as wide as changes to an entire ecosystem. Students with a strong interest in biology but not a strong grounding in the basic sciences thrive in the B.A. Biology program. The B.A is much more flexible than the B.Sc., and many students pair it with a second B.A. major. For example, a student interested in governmental health policy might choose a B.A. in Biology (Health Science) and a B.A. in Political Science, whereas an environmentally-oriented student might pair a B.A. Biology (Biodiversity and Ecology) with a B.A. in Environmental Studies.
Students interested in wildlife biology, ecology, zoology, plant science, and/or the environment should choose the Biodiversity and Ecology concentration. This degree prepares students for employment or graduate studies in these varied environmental and organismal fields.
