The University of Denver's undergraduate program in biological sciences, which includes options for both a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science, offers students the skills and knowledge for pursuing a wide range of career and graduate options. The BS degree offers students a more intensive science and math experience, requiring a chemistry minor, a second minor of the student's choosing and one year each of both mathematics and physics. Students can choose to specialize in sub-disciplines within cell and molecular biology or ecology and evolutionary biology.
Our specialized upper-level coursework is taught by active researchers in the discipline and we provide extensive opportunities for in-depth research with faculty. Graduates can leave prepared for jobs or graduate work in a wide range of life sciences disciplines, including cell and molecular biology, neuroscience, and ecology and evolutionary biology. The curricula can be tailored to prepare students for futures in medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine and other health-related professional programs, such as physical therapy or as physician assistants.
