There are several related programs that students considering a major in Biology might also want to explore.
The Environmental Studies Program (ES) is of interest to students who wish to study the human relationship to the environment from many different directions. Students enrolled in the Conservation Biology focus of the ES program automatically get joint major status with Biology and ES.
The Molecular Biology and Biochemistry Program (MBBC) is for students who wish the opportunity to have an in depth exploration of the flow and regulation of genetic information contained in DNA to its expression in the development and function of cells.
The Neuroscience Program offers students the opportunity to explore the neural bases of behavior from multiple perspectives, including biology, psychology and philosophy.
Biology Department faculty are active participants in the teaching of courses that are offered by these programs and supervise research students in each.
Finally, students who are interested in becoming licensed teachers at the elementary or secondary level or those who just want to know more about education should consider a minor in Education Studies along with their Biology major.
