Wolf (1995) Professor of Biology B.A. summacumlaude,UniversityofLouisville;Ph.D., UniversityofKentucky;Post-doctoralFellow,University of Colorado Health Sciences Center BIOLOGY Students in the Biology major choose either the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree. Either degree can successfully prepare a student for the workplace, graduate school in biological sciences, or professional programs such as medical, dental, or veterinary school. The B.A. degree offers more flexibility within the program while the B.S. degree is more focused, requiring additional specific math and science. Consult your advisor about which degree best suits your post- graduate goals. Regardless of the type of degree chosen, students in the Biology major take requirements and choose electives from content areas: Organismal Biology, Interrelationships, Evolutionary Biology, and Cell Biology and Genetics. Specific courses are required as part of the Liberal Education Core in the areas of Natural Science and Mathematics.
