Undergraduate Programs

Biological Sciences, BS

Biological Sciences is offered in three concentration areas:

  • Cell/Molecular/Biotechnology
  • Health Professions
  • General Biology

Learn more about the biological sciences program

Chemistry, BS

Our students spend less time in the lecture hall than students at other institutions do, and more time in the research lab. We encourage undergraduates to get involved in research projects early on, working alongside senior faculty and graduate students. In addition, all seniors in the chemistry program conduct an independent research project and present their findings to classmates and faculty.
