Bachelor of Science in Biology

Study the Science of Life and Change Yours

This program is offered on Campus.

How does the human body work? How do organisms interact? How did life come to be?

If you’re fascinated by complex questions such as these, pursue your biology degree from Post University. Take your first step toward a new career in biological science, health care, and biopharmaceutical industries or an advanced degree in medicine, veterinary science or pharmacy.

As a student in our biology degree program, you will design and conduct your experiments; develop your scientific and quantitative reasoning skills; collect and organize data for analysis; and hone your written and oral communication skills through lab reports and in-class presentations over many subspecialties of biology, including:

  • Molecular biology
  • Cell biology
  • Microbiology
  • Genetics
  • Botany
  • Anatomy
  • Physiology
  • Zoology
  • Ecology

Following the core coursework, you will complete an independent study project or internship. There are many nearby research universities and industries for you to gain real-world experience in the field and biology jobs upon graduation.
