Biological Science Undergraduate Programs

Biology is a rapidly changing science that incorporates molecular and cellular biology; behavioral and molecular ecology; developmental biology; organismal, ecological and evolutionary genetics; microbiology; aerobiology; molecular systematics; and neuroscience. Flexible degree requirements lead to careers in the biology and health fields or graduate school.

The Department of Biological Science offers B.S., B.A., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees along with an interdisciplinary option in biogeosciences.

Professional Opportunities

  • Science Teacher (Primary or Secondary)
  • Health Care Administration
  • Laboratory Researcher
  • Environmental Forensics Technician

Research opportunities allow undergraduate and graduate students to work directly with professors in laboratories as well as ecological field sites such as the Tall Grass Prairie Preserve, the Oklahoma Cross Timbers and the Ozark Mountains. Students are encouraged to participate in the local chapters of the Beta Beta Beta biology honor society and Alpha Epsilon Delta pre-med honor society and are often invited to present research at nationwide conferences.
