BS/BA in Biology

Programs of Study for BS/BA in Biology

The Biology program is designed to help students gain a comprehensive understanding of the life sciences. We believe it is vital for students at the undergraduate level to become familiar with the major principles and unifying concepts of biology. Thus, the curriculum introduces the fundamental areas of biology and still provides flexibility. Students may select from several optional emphasis areas, including:
  • Animal Biology
  • Aquatic and Fisheries Biology
  • Genetics and Cell/Molecular Biology
  • Plant Biology
  • Pre-Medical & Pre-Dental
  • Pre-Veterinary Medicine
  • Pre-Physical Therapy
  • Teacher Certification
  • Wildlife Biology
Biology majors at Grand Valley State University are able to tailor their programs to fit career needs or interests with consultation from their advisors. Any of these areas, in addition to the General Biology major, serve as the foundation for graduate studies.
