Reinhardt offers a Bachelor of
Science in Biology through the School of Math and Sciences. Majors learn the skills and knowledge necessary for pre-professional programs including: pre-dentistry, pre-medicine, pre-pharmacy, pre-physical therapy and pre-veterinary. The B.S. in Biology provides students with the education to be experienced
biologists, as well as broad-spectrum based scientists.

It Helps To Be...
A nature lover. If you like animals and plants and enjoy learning why life exists and behaves the way it does, studying biology is for you. It also helps to be fascinated by animals, plants, or humans and are curious as to what makes them work and are interested in working with them in various ways.
You may spend a lot of time outside, if you are a field biologist. Otherwise, you will likely be in an office or lab setting, where you will be exposed to various types of situations. Most work full-time and some may work on nights/weekends/holidays as well.

What Can I Do with A Degree in Biology?
Biology majors, in a sense, go straight to the heart of things.
They focus on the living world, everything from microscopic
organisms to the human body. They look at all of the elements
and questions surrounding life, from reproduction to the ways in
which our physical environment influences the way we grow and
develop. Biology majors have at their disposal a vast array of
skills and tools that can lead to careers and professions in a wide
variety of fields. In addition to being a stepping stone to a career
in medicine, Biology majors have the opportunity to explore
careers in some of the hottest and most rapidly developing fields
such as genetics, biotechnology, and medical research.
As a Biology major, you have the option to concentrate in one of these fields: Pre-Medical/Dental/Pharmacy, Pre-Veterinary, Pre-Physical Therapy, and Pre-Field Biology.
• Seek opportunities within Biology to investigate, collect, and
analyze data in a variety of specializations
• Supplement curriculum by working on Biological Science research teams
• Gain experience practicing precision, creativity, critical thinking
and meticulous organization in all classes
• Gain experience collecting and reporting relevant data while
perceiving patterns and structures in every study discipline
• Attain an internship in an applied field of Biological Science
within your first several semesters to ensure major choice
• Seek research experiences that allow for attendance at appropriate conferences, make presentations if possible
• Develop the ability to preparing poster presentations and
volunteer to help Division faculty with program materials
• Develop skill at developing research at away locations through
study abroad & the National Student Exchange
• Attain appropriate Internships and work experiences throughout your 4 years & maintain correspondence w/contacts
• Consider the full variety of masters and PhD programs in the
field, continue correspondence with all previous contacts
