BIOLOGY PROGRAM/PRE-HEALTH

The Department of Biological and Physical Sciences offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology as well as a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology. Students wishing to attend medical, dental, veterinary, physical therapy, and physician’s assistants programs often major in biology.

Our degree programs prepare students to work as biologists, enter graduate school, attend professional schools, and more. We have recent graduates working at companies like Waters Agricultural Laboratories and Patheon. Our graduates are also attending veterinary school at North Carolina State University.

Students have the opportunity to engage in faculty-mentored research for a unique one-on-one learning experience that often culminates in presenting at regional or national conferences. Our students receive individual attention and access to faculty and instrumentation that is nearly impossible to find at larger universities.

Featured among our course offerings are many courses with intensive laboratories that utilize our equipment laboratory complete with microscopes, fluorescence microscope, cell culture equipment, FT-IR, UV-Vis, HPLC, GC-MS, Real-time PCR, FAAS, NMR, WaveNow potentiostat, and more.  For more information, see our list of instrumentation.
