About Biology


Courses in the department of biology are designed to provide a broad cultural education and prepare students for graduate studies, the teaching profession, medical and allied health professions and positions in resource management, environmental science and research.

Students planning to pursue graduate studies in biology (for research or professional degrees) are strongly encouraged to consult with faculty advisors in biology to determine the best curriculum for the chosen career path.

About Exercise & Sport Science


The department of exercise and sport science offers a core major in exercise and sport science (26 hours). Additionally, two special programs are available that offer interdisciplinary breadth in sports management and exercise physiology. It also prepares students for certification as secondary school health and teachers. Minors can be obtained in exercise and sport science with a specific emphasis in either sports management or exercise physiology. Students should consult a department faculty member prior to selecting a specific program of study.
