Iowa State University offers four-year degree programs leading to the Bachelor of Science in Genetics. These are rigorous curricula that include coursework in calculus, statistics, chemistry, physics, and many aspects of biological science, communications, social sciences, and humanities. Programs are offered in both the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. These two tracks are very close in the science and mathematics components but vary in the humanities and social sciences courses that give each college its distinctive emphasis. Undergraduate Genetics at ISU is interdepartmental, to account for the interdisciplinary nature of the field. Faculty members from three different ISU departments participate in teaching, advising, undergraduate research, the learning community, and all other aspects of the undergraduate experience. The expertise of the genetics faculty thus includes all areas of genetics from molecular mechanisms of biological function at the atomic level all the way through organisms, populations, and evolution. All faculty members have active research programs and there are many opportunities for undergraduate participation in the laboratories.
