Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

With a well-rounded education in biology, all tracks prepare undergraduates for entry into graduate schools, health related fields (medical, nursing, dentistry, veterinary) and the job market, including careers in scientific research, conservation, environmental law and policy, biotechnology, forensics, agriculture, education, science policy, non-profits, and local, state and federal agencies. The availability of various tracks allows students to tailor a degree program towards their specific interests. 

The General Biology Track allows students to gain experience with biological concepts and principles from a balanced organismal, molecular, and environmental systems perspective. This track offers students the opportunity to explore the broad continuum of biology evenly and might be particularly desirable for those that have difficulty choosing an emphasis on one type of biology.
