Recommended Course Sequence

The Bachelor of Science degree in Biology prepares students for a variety of careers and professional occupations such as public service with federal, state and local natural resource and environmental agencies; consulting and manufacturing firms and educational institutions as well as a variety of graduate school programs in the biological sciences. The major is also a solid foundation for those wishing to pursue further training in medical, dental, physician assistant, pharmacy, or veterinary school (see section on Pre-Professional Studies). Students interested in such graduate work should contact the Anderson University Pre-Professional Health Sciences Committee which can also advise students on the articulation agreement for the Guaranteed Acceptance Program with the Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine (VCOM).

No grade below “C” in a course required for the major or minor (including cognates and specified electives) will count toward satisfying that course requirement. This policy does not refer to general education requirements or elective courses.
