A B.A. Biology from the Department of Biological Sciences is designed for students who are interested in biology but want to pursue other interests at the same time. Unlike a B.S. Biology, the Bachelor of Arts program gives students more flexibility in choosing their classes and includes a minor and foreign language.
For graduates with a B.A. Biology degree, career opportunities are extensive. For those looking to jump into the work field, graduates can find jobs as technical assistants for biotech, industry or government positions. Alternatively, graduates with a teaching certificate can find a job as a high school biology teacher.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job outlook for environmental scientists and specialists will increase by 8% between 2019-2029. That’s an additional 7,100 jobs.
