Biological Sciences (BS)
Minor in Biological Sciences
A student completing a
major in the Biological Sciences will be able to:
The Department of Biological Sciences provides programs for both Biology majors and non-majors. For its majors, the department offers seven different concentrations. Selecting a concentration allows students to have a moderate degree of specialization in one of several areas.
Students will also have a number of opportunities for learning outside the classroom, including a program of seminars, internships and opportunities for research with, or under the direction of, a member of the faculty.
Additionally, the department provides courses for the life science components of non-biology majors (e.g. nursing, physical education, chemistry, environmental science, psychology) as well as prerequisite courses for those who intend to later apply for entrance elsewhere into specialized programs such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, pharmacy, and dentistry. The Department of Biological Sciences provides those students with both academic and career counseling during their years at DePaul University.
