Within the Biology curriculum, students may choose one of three tracks:

(1) A liberal arts Biology track leading to a BA degree, OR

(2) Organismal/Environmental Biology, leading to a BS degree, OR

(3) Cell/Molecular Biology, leading to a BS degree.

In addition, we offer the core Biology courses required for students interested in pursuing a Pre-Health/Pre-Medical program of study.  We also have two accelerated medical programs with other institutions:  1) the seven-year, dual degree BS/Doctor of Optometry program with the SUNY College of Optometry, and 2) the seven-year, dual degree BS/Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine program with the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine.  Students may also minor in Biology.  For graduate students, we offer advanced study leading to the MA in Biology or the MAT in Biology.

The Departments of Biology and Chemistry offer an interdisciplinary major in Biochemistry leading to a Bachelor of Science degree. The curricular requirements are found here.
