With degrees in both professional and applied biology, the University of Evansville offers the preparation you will need to be successful no matter what you pursue after graduation.
Students can choose from two major areas of study. Both programs provide the flexibility students need to design a curriculum that meets their career goals.
B.S. and B.A. degrees in Professional Biology
The professional biology major provides a rigorous foundation for students to go on to graduate or professional schools. To prepare for graduate school, students can tailor their area of study for programs in pre-dentistry, pre-medicine, pre-optometry, and pre-veterinary medicine.
B.S. and B.A. degrees in Applied Biology
The applied biology major prepares students for private sector jobs. Applied biology majors have the flexibility to incorporate coursework from multiple areas (e.g., business; creative writing; political science) with their biology background. Students seeking internships or desiring to double major frequently benefit from the applied biology major.
Students who enjoy biology may be interested in other degree programs at the University. Some complementary programs include biochemistry, chemistry, neuroscience, environmental science, and environmental administration. Another option is the field of education (senior high and middle school) with a science major.
