Programs of Study                                                 

All Undergraduate Biology majors are required to specify what area of concentration their degree will be in. Currently there are six areas in which students can choose to study. All of the areas of concentration are special designed for students interested in pursuing graduate education or research careers in the specific areas.  My Osprey Map is a sequence guide to help students schedule their classes each semester until graduation.
