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 relations between brain and behavior is one of the most exciting frontiers in biology. The neuroscience concentration within the biology major encourages students to take courses covering the cellular and subcellular levels (molecular and genetic properties, cell and membrane physiology, neurochemistry), systemic levels (neuroanatomy, sensory and reflex function, brain disorders), and integrative levels (memory, behavioral genetics, evolution of brain and behavior). Students fulfilling the requirements of the Concentration in Neurobiology will receive a note on their official transcript. Also available is an undergraduate major in Neuroscience.
