About this program

B.S. in Biology

The Biology Program is ideal for those exploring biological science or research careers. The program's flexible design allows students to create a customized curriculum tailored to their own interests. The degree includes classes that focus on biology at the molecular, cellular, organismal and population levels. Laboratory courses are provided in modern, well- equipped multi-disciplinary teaching facilities. Relevant field studies involving plants, animals, and marine communities are also included. The BS in Biology degree provides students with a broad background in the biological sciences in order to prepare them for jobs in research, health care, environmental management and conservation, and/or education. The regular track of the Biology Program prepares students for entry-level positions in biology such as lab technician, research assistant, animal technician, wildlife biologist and environmental educator. Specialized tracks in Biochemistry and Environmental Science prepare students for employment in these growing fields. Students majoring in Biology also frequently enter graduate research programs or seek admission to medical, dental, or other professional healthcare programs.

Admission requirements

First-year international applicants must submit official copies of one test that assesses English competency. Husson University accepts the TOEFL (minimum score of 75) or IELTS (minimum score 6). Students who have been studying in a total English immersion environment for two or more years may replace the test of English competency with the SAT or ACT. In addition, after acceptance, students will complete an English and Math Placement Exam prior to class placement. Assessments help to ensure course placements that provide the strongest support for academic success.
