Courses & Requirements

The discipline of biology is extremely broad and deep. The curriculum in biology reflects this breadth with offerings ranging from introductory courses for biology majors and non-majors to advanced instruction in the various subdisciplines in biology. Depth is provided within the biology major by courses that focus on progressively more specific aspects of selected subject areas within biology.
