Bachelor of Science Biology
Science leads us to new discoveries
Biology is the disciplined study of living organisms. The Biology Degree is a vital part of liberal arts education, enabling students to develop an appreciation of their own biological nature as well as the great variety and communities of organisms with which they come into contact and are dependent on. Majoring in biology prepares students for communication of scientific knowledge, research, and advanced study in the life sciences. Topics are studied in learning communities as students examine theories and ideas with an experimental inquiry.
Within the mission of IW, the Division of Science strives to provide an educational process that empowers students to meet their potential. The Division accomplishes this through vigorous innovative teaching. The student is engaged in the mastery of the IW Life Skills through both personalized and community learning.
In addition, students will find that the science programs provide a solid foundation for graduate level education in the behavioral or professional sciences for those students who wish to continue their education beyond the bachelor degree.
Internship opportunities are included in each program and offer real life experiences in preparation for future careers.
