    Biology is the study living organisms. Biologists usually specialize in a particular group of plants or animals and may study the origin, development, structure, life cycle, or physiology of one species or the ecological relationships between several species. The Department of Biology offers two undergraduate degree programs in biology, a Bachelor of Arts (BA) and a Bachelor of Science (BS). The BA degree in Biology, through the availability of a large number of electives, gives students maximum flexibility in earning a biology degree. The BA program is recommended for students with broad educational objectives or who intend to pursue further education in areas such as allied health professions, professional schools, or teaching certification. The BS degree in Biology is designed for students to obtain a comprehensive, solid foundation in the major branches of Biology. This degree plan is recommended for students preparing for graduate programs in biological sciences or any professional programs in health and medical sciences such as medical, dental or veterinary schools.
