Division of Biological and Physical Sciences
Baccalaureate Degree programs
The Division offers several degree programs that lead to the Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Science in Education degrees. Students pursuing the B.S. Degree in Biology, Chemistry, or Environmental Science may select from several concentrations described below.
In addition to its four-year degree programs, the Division also offers preparation for various health related professional programs including medicine, dentistry, clinical laboratory sciences, dental hygiene, health informatics and information management, occupational therapy, optometry, pharmacy, radiologic sciences, physical therapy, and veterinary medicine. Most of these professional programs require a minimum of two years of college level courses as prerequisites; some require the completion of a baccalaureate degree as well. The Division provides curricula which satisfy the entry requirements for these programs.
The Division assigns biological and physical science faculty to advise students in the program of their choice. Each student is assigned a personal advisor who is familiar with the particular program that the student chooses. Advisors help students plan their schedule of classes, help them keep up with requirements of various curricula, help them with applications to graduate or professional schools, and assist them with career planning. Students interested in any degree or pre-professional program are urged to consult frequently with their assigned academic advisor.
