The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in biology is the degree recommended for students contemplating a career in biological or biomedical sciences. The B.S. degree requires either Calculus II or statistics, organic chemistry, and physics corequisites. Two semesters of introductory biology and eight upper-level courses are required. The upper-level courses include courses in specific areas, as well as elective courses in biology and related biological sciences. The study of the structure and function of organisms is central to our understanding of biology. The traditional disciplines of anatomy and physiology serve as the hub of modern integrative biology, with engagement in cell & molecular biology, evolutionary biology, behavior and ecology. The study of biomechanics also integrates an understanding of physics and engineering, particularly dynamics and statics, as it applies to the problems of organismal structure and function. Students intending to attend graduate school are strongly encouraged to undertake an extended research project (multiple semesters) in the area of anatomy, physiology or biomechanics. Students fulfilling the requirements of the Concentration in Anatomy, Physiology and Biomechanics will receive a note on their official transcript certifying successful completion of the concentration.
