A major in biology provides the graduate with a variety of courses for a diversity of experiences in biology. This program, offered in Kansas City at our Parkville campus, includes courses in general biology, botany, anatomy, physiology, genetics, microbiology, and research techniques. With the basic core courses, plus required supporting chemistry, mathematics, and elective biology courses, the biology graduate will be prepared for either the workforce or entrance into professional or graduate school. Students are strongly advised to seek either an additional major or a minor to provide for maximum postgraduate opportunities.
The Department of Natural and Physical Sciences welcomes partnerships with appropriate businesses and government agencies to place students studying biology in Kansas City into internship positions in their major or a related field. The Department of Natural and Physical Sciences actively encourages students to work in such internship positions and considers internships to be an integral part of the curriculum.
