With a bachelor of arts in biology, you’ll gain greater flexibility in your undergraduate coursework. This flexibility may be used to incorporate a minor, a second major, a study abroad program or additional elective courses.


  • General biology emphasis - provides the maximum flexibility to craft a major to suit particular interests. Students are encouraged to consider off-campus summer programs and semester abroad programs for additional course enrichment.
  • Secondary teaching emphasis - for students interested in teaching secondary biology.

Career opportunities
