Biology Double Majors

·

Biology-Math   

How does the brain form memories? How do neurons coordinate activities? How do elephants decide where to travel next? Can we predict where a bird will nest? How do plants spread through a landscape? How will climate change affect plants?

·

As Biology is becomes a more quantitative science, the demand for mathematical biologists will continue to grow. Students with exceptional mathematics and science skills have the option of the Biology-Mathematics double major.  Unlike many double majors that at least five years to complete, the Bio-Math double major has been designed to be completed in four years.

Biology-STS   

Science Technology and Society (STS), offered by the Department of Humanities, integrates science and technology with the humanities and social sciences. The multidisciplinary approach of STS offers biology majors a unique opportunity to enhance their biology educational and expand their career options. The double major in Biology-STS can be achieved with either the BA or BS curriculum in biology.

For more information contact the Director of the STS program, Prof. Robert Friedman or Karen Roach.

·



Biology-Chemistry   

The double major program in Biology-Chemistry combines two allied disciplines while preparing students for graduate work in either Biology or Chemistry, as well as careers pursuant to such fields as genetics, biotechnology, and molecular biology that embody both Biology and Chemistry. This program focuses on Biological Sciences (35 biology credits) and Chemistry (47 credits) with required courses in Biochemistry, Organic, Analytical and Physical Chemistry.
