About the Program

Biology career options include a choice of dozens of intriguing specialties. One can concentrate on microbiology and investigate viruses, bacteria, or molds. One can focus on cytology and study cells or histology and delve into the structure of animal and vegetable tissue. Ichthyology, parasitology, embryology, genetics, ecology, and biochemistry are a few of the other choices in the field. Emerging areas of emphasis include the concern for the environment and allied health professions.
