All changes become effective the fall semester following Campus Assembly approval.
II. Objectives: The biology curriculum is designed
to provide students with biological knowledge and to develop scientific skills
as part of their liberal arts education.
It prepares students for graduate
or professional programs and for careers such as secondary biology education,
government service, or private sector employment. Included in those skills
are the abilities to conduct and interpret scientific research and to
successfully communicate scientific information both verbally and in writing.
The faculty believe these objectives can best be attained through a balanced
core curriculum in biology and a diverse array of elective coursework, both of
which include active lab and field experiences. The biology major prepares
students for graduate or professional programs and for careers such as
secondary biology education, government service, or private sector employment.
