The Department of Biological Sciences provides courses for both biology majors and non-majors. For its majors, the department offers six different concentrations. These concentrations provide a core program consisting of six to seven lecture/laboratory courses. Beyond the core program, the concentrations allow the students to have a moderate degree of specialization in any one of several areas. It also provides a number of opportunities for learning outside the classroom, including a program of seminars, internships and opportunities for research with, or under the direction of, a member of the faculty.
