A major in Biological Sciences is a preparation for advanced academic work, for careers in civil service, industry, or teaching; as a background for professional training in such fields as biological science education, biotechnology, nursing, public health, environmental health, pre-medicine and all related areas of biology. Natural resources are among the most important assets of man and the wise use of renewable resources is basic to development in the economic, social and political areas. The basic pre-professional requirements necessary to transfer are offered in the Biological Sciences, Physical Sciences, and Mathematics Departments.
