Biology Graduate School/Industry Concentration

A next-level biology concentration that gets you ready for higher learning.

Bachelor of Science (BS) in Biology, Graduate School/Industry Concentration

The Graduate School/Industry Biology concentration provides students with a broad exposure to the field of biology in preparation for graduate school or entering the workforce immediately after graduation. Students are advised throughout their program, which is customized to meet the needs and career goals of the individual student. The curriculum is designed to encourage students to understand scientific theories within a Christian worldview.

A biology major taking the graduate school/industry curriculum must complete a minor or may complete an approved program of supporting courses (such as the recommended electives) in lieu of a minor. Taking the recommended courses makes the student a stronger candidate for graduate school or industry positions.

Why wait for graduation to start your career? Many relevant student job positions on campus are available to Biology majors, such as Resident Health Assistants or Biology Lab Assistants.
