Biology

Erskine’s biology major emphasizes discovery, scientific thinking, and the skills needed for your future career or graduate studies. Our graduates have a history of successfully entering a variety of professional and graduate programs, including medicine and human genetics, veterinary medicine, environmental law, and toxicology. Other graduates directly enter competitive job markets, pursuing careers such as wildlife biology, genetic technology, and environmental management.

Degree Details

Within the biology major, you can earn either a Bachelor of Science or a Bachelor of Arts.

  • The B.S. in Biology prepares you for a career in scientific research, or for medical or graduate studies in biological sciences.
  • The B.A. in Biology is ideal if you wish to enter environmental or health profession fields that do not require a doctoral degree, or if you intend to enter a science-related career such as teaching, law, or managerial, compliance, or quality assurance positions in science-related firms.

If you complete a B.S. in Biology with an emphasis in Biomedical Science, you will have a firm foundation for advanced studies in areas such as pharmacology, biomedical research, forensic science, genetics, physiology, biochemistry, and molecular biology.

The B.S. in Biology with an emphasis in Ecology, Environmental Science, and Wildlife Biology can prepare you for graduate studies in conservation biology, ecology, zoology/botany, wildlife management, and environmental science.

Erskine’s biology program furthers your understanding of the world and prepares you for your future.
