Professional Program Options

Biological, Environmental, and Earth Sciences

The Department of Biology and Geology offers a wide variety of courses required for entrance into professional schools (dental, medical, pharmacy, and veterinarian). Students pursuing a professional career generally choose the B.S. General Biology Track and with the help of their academic advisor, plan a curriculum that is most appropriate for them. Because professional schools often have their own specific course requirements, it is incumbent on the student to review the particular professional school's admission requirements. Links to a number of local dental, medical, pharmacy, and veterinary schools are provided below.
