Biology is the study of life and living organisms. Biologists study, explain and improve human life with their scientific contributions. They classify, analyze, and describe the living world around us. A biology degree is not just for pre-med students. Biologists can use genetic research to develop more durable crops, solve environmental problems, develop models for complex problems using bioinformatics, or study the properties of rare organisms in exotic locations Where do biologists work: About one-third of BioSci graduates pursue health careers (medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, veterinary medicine, and nursing). S&T graduates have an excellent success rate at gaining admission to competitive programs. For instance, over the past 10 years 75% of S&T students who have applied to medical school have been accepted at the time of their initial application; the eventual success rate is even higher. Another third of our BioSci graduates enter graduate school to pursue a career in research. About 10% of our graduates obtain certification for secondary teaching. Other graduates find employment in biotechnical fields and in the pharmaceutical industry. Biology encompasses the study of life and living organisms. Biology embraces a vast and rapidly expanding body of knowledge and inquiry, including: Biochemistry, cellular biology, and molecular biology Anatomy and physiology of cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems Evolution, natural history, and biodiversity of all forms of life Ecology of organisms, populations, communities and ecosystems Biology draws on the physical sciences (chemistry, physics, mathematics, and earth sciences), as well as informational and behavioral sciences, for analysis and interpretation of life processes and interrelationships. The study of biology provides an academic foundation for career and postgraduate opportunities in: Research (in academic, industrial, government, chemical, agriculture, pharmaceutical, and environmental labs) Education (teaching and graduate study) Healthcare (human medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, veterinary medicine, physical therapy, etc) This program is focused on Pre-Medicine Emphasis.
