Called to learn.

Biological science students acquire a broad knowledge of the general principles of biological science to include the interrelationships of living organisms within the biosphere and the ways human populations impact these relationships. In the laboratories students develop skills in the use of the techniques and instrumentation applied in modern biological science. These experiences provide optimum preparation for graduate study or careers as a professional biologist or a biology education.

Our health related programs or pre-programs provide guidance and training relative to gaining admission to the clinical phases of the programs or career advancement within a particular health related profession.

If you would like to learn more about our curriculum, please contact us to schedule a visit with a faculty advisor. We hope to hear from you soon!
