Department of Biology Programs

Many of our Biology programs have pre-professional concentrations to prepare you for medical, dental, veterinary, physical therapy, and physician assistant school.  The Molecular Biology and Biotechnology Program also offers a Research Concentration. If you're interested in graduate or professional school, this advising information will help you learn more. Be sure to investigate the specific requirements of institutions to which you're applying to make sure you meet all requirements. 

    Biology General Program (BS)

    This program is designed to prepare students for entry-level employment or graduate and professional training in a sub-discipline of biology. The five core biology courses in the Bachelor of Science program provide a wide breadth of preparation for more advanced coursework chosen by students to meet their individual needs and interests.

    Biology Honors Program

    The Honors Program in Biology seeks to provide exceptional students an opportunity for formal academic recognition in a program even more rigorous than the curriculum required of other biology students.

    Molecular Biology and Biotechnology Program (BS)

    Students in this program are exposed to state of the art molecular techniques, and students completing this program will be highly qualified to seek employment at academic, industrial, or government laboratories engaged in molecular biology endeavors, or to pursue graduate and professional studies. 

    Wildlife Biology Program (BS)

    Students in this program will be exposed to wildlife management methods, field techniques and theoretical studies of wildlife species, populations and communities. Wildlife biologists will ultimately be responsible for the study and management of animal and plant populations within state, national and possibly international borders.

    Human Biology Program (BA)

    This program is designed to provide students with a background in human-related biology courses as the focus of a broad and liberal education and in preparation for entrance into a variety of professional programs for healthcare providers.

    Not Sure?

    If you're not sure what the best choice is for you, we are here to help. Contact Academic Advisors Aaron Bagwell (Human & Molecular Biology) or Megan Presland (General and Wildlife Biology) to talk through your goals and how you can best achieve them with a Biology degree from UM-Flint.
