Biology, B.A.


Return to Programs of Study Return to: Programs of Study

The Biology, B.A. degree provides broad training in the biological sciences, and requires students to broaden their education via a minor, second major, or pre-law concentration. The program provides training across all major fields of the biological sciences, including molecular and cellular biology, organismal biology, ecology, and evolution. The requirements include a core curriculum common to all biology majors, as well as electives that are selected from clusters that represent major levels of analysis within the biological sciences. Students enrolled in this degree who are interested in graduate or professional school may need to complete additional chemistry and physics coursework beyond what is required for this degree, and should consider completing the "Biology, B.S.", or one of the Biology, B.S. concentrations instead of the B.A.

Biology Clusters


Select at least 18 additional credits from the list of courses below, including at least one course from each of the three biology clusters. At least four of these additional courses must have a laboratory component.

Other Optional Courses:

B.A. Requirement for a Minor


A minor in a different discipline, a pre-law concentration, or a double major. The minor requirement is not satisfied by a general education thematic minor.
