With a Bachelor of Science degree in biology from Cheyney University, students are qualified to enter careers in health-related fields, teach biology in secondary school (with required certification), and enter professional schools of dentistry, medicine, physical therapy, nursing, veterinary medicine, pharmacy, and physician assistant, or continue their education through graduate school programs in biology, biotechnology, and the biomedical sciences.
There are six areas of concentration under the biology degree program:
- Concentration in Pre-Medicine
- Concentration in Ecology/Environmental Biology
- Concentration in Pre-Nursing/Health Professions
- Concentration in Forensics
- Concentration in Aquaculture
- Concentration in Cell and Molecular Biology
These concentrations offer students the opportunity to “specialize” within an area of biology as preparation for careers in specific, high-demand fields, and require students to complete a total of seven major-track electives specific to the chosen concentration. Because the emphasis is placed on various research and scientific skills, students are also positioned to enter graduate and professional programs.
