This program curriculum helps students develop an understanding of principles governing biological processes that span a continuum from molecules and cells to organisms and ecosystems. In addition to conveying fundamental scientific knowledge, its curriculum aims: to provide opportunities for students to understand and use the process of scientific inquiry; to promote development of student's critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and to help students gain the background essential for making informed decisions about issues that relate to science, technology, and the environment. Majors are educated in the biological sciences by means of formal course work, laboratory and field research projects, volunteer experiences, as teaching assistants in some of the biology laboratory classes, and through individual studies guided by biology professors. The biological sciences major provides a foundation for advanced study of biology at the graduate level, for further training in such areas as the health professions, environmental science, law, biomedical ethics, genetic counseling, journalism, and public health, and for a wide array of career opportunities. Students planning to major in biology with the purpose of teaching science in secondary schools must identify themselves and plan their programs with the faculty advisor for secondary education as early in their academic careers as possible.
