Biology is the study of life. To understand biology, students need to have a working knowledge of all sciences.
The Fairmont State University Biology program gives students the broad based education they need to succeed. Students can work toward any of three Biology degrees. They are:
- B.A. in Education with a specialization in Biology
- B.S. in Biology
- B.S. in Biology with an emphasis in biotechnology
Students earning the B.S. in Biology have the flexibility to select courses in one of the following areas:
- Organismal Biology
- Cell and Molecular Biology
Biology majors are not required to take a minor.
Some Fairmont State students choose the Biology program as their undergraduate major before going on to graduate school for dentistry, medicine, pharmacy and veterinary medicine.
