Majors and Programs at
I. & II. Biology or Biology-Chemistry
A. Students majoring in biology or biology-chemistry often take concentrations (tracks) of courses targeted at specific careers:
- Forensic Science Track. Dr. Haskell Ph.D. is a renowned Forensic Entomologist who participates in criminal investigations and court cases across the United States.
- Wildlife Ecology Track is a broad, interdisciplinary field that prepares our students for careers or graduate school programs in a wide variety of areas. Examples include: Wildlife Biologist, Ecologist, Environmental Science, Environmental Consulting, Conservation Biology, Aquatic and Marine Biology and Natural Resources. Dr. Robert Brodman, Ph.D. or Dr. Tim Rice PhD are both highly knowledgeable in environmental biology. Dr. Brodman conducts ongoing research and publication, and he involves students in both research and publication.
- Teacher Certification in Life Science - The Biology or Biology-Chemistry major coupled with a minor in education fulfills the requirements for a student to be certified to teach Biology or Life Science at the Middle School or High School level. More information is on the education page.
B. Instead of taking a particular track, some of our students seek a basic Biology degree and enter the job market immediately after graduation or go into graduate programs in Microbiology, Biochemistry etc.
