Concentrations and Minors
The Ecology Concentration is open to students in either the B.S. or B.A. degree program. This concentration is intended for students interested in exposure to ecological principles within the context of a rigorous biological sciences curriculum.
The Entomology concentration is for students studying biology, botany, or zoology. We aim to provide students with a broad understanding of the form and function of insects, their diversity, their interactions with people and society, and insect conservation and management in natural and human-derived systems.
The Pre-Medical Studies Concentration is open to students in the B.S. degree program only, not the B.A. This concentration is intended for students preparing for a career in medicine or one of the other health professions (dentistry, optometry, osteopathy, physician assistant, pharmacy, podiatry, veterinary medicine, and other health-related fields). Students completing this concentration will be fully prepared for advanced studies in these fields. In addition to the required science and mathematics courses, the concentration also includes general education courses that are desired by many medical schools. The concentration allows for considerable choice in courses and provides valuable guidance to students and their advisors with regard to course selection in their major and in general education requirements.
