Undergraduate Programs

The Department of Biology offers both a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Science . Students can choose to add a concentration within their degree programs. Our minor in biology is the ideal complement to many SSU majors. The BA and BS allow for continued education, i.e., Certificate/Graduate/Professional Schools, with input from a Faculty Advisor.

Preparation for careers in biological and biotechnical research, conservation and restoration, education, healthcare and marine sciences. Please contact the Biology Office if you have any questions.
