O que eu aprenderei?

In the recent years, biology has been modernized with the development of new and sophisticated techniques in molecular and cellular biology, genomics, and bioinformatics.

These techniques are utilized today in various areas of research, from genetics and differentiation to biomedicine, field studies, and animal behavior. At UB's Bachelors and Associates Major BA, BS Degree Programs in Biology, the department’s program of study and research reflect this modern view of biology. Students are exposed to modern concepts, and current methods of experimentation in molecular biology, genomics, and field biology within introductory courses taken at the outset of their studies. Motivated students have the opportunity to choose advanced courses, which are given in the specialized areas of faculty research.

Medical School Preparation and Career Success

The Biology program at UB provides an outstanding preparation for careers in medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, naturopathic medicine, chiropractic, allied health professions and related fields, in research and academia. Graduates of UB’s biology department have a remarkable record of success in acceptance into graduate and professional schools (medical), and in establishing notable careers in the biomedical sciences.

The Biology major program offers curricula leading to a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree.

Francis Bacon said that “knowledge is power,” and nowhere is that more evident than in the development of biology-related disciplines and technologies.

Learning Outcomes for Biology

By completing the Biology program, students will:

  • be able to read and interpret current biological literature, formulate scientific hypotheses, design and execute experiments, and analyze and interpret data
  • have mastered the fundamental principles of cell/molecular/organism biology
  • have training necessary to apply biological, biomedical and biotechnological principles and techniques to human health and well-being from a holistic/wellness perspective
  • have awareness and appreciation of interdisciplinary interactions among other disciplines in the natural sciences, mathematics and cognate fields
  • have awareness to appreciate the beauty, complexity and fragility of our biosphere, and the intricate dynamics of balancing systems within the biosphere
  • have critical tools to exercise responsibility and stewardship of the biosphere by assuming positions of leadership in our global society

Concentrations

Biology students are prepared to enter the work force in government, the pharmaceutical or chemical industry, EPA, FDA, NIH or other research institutions.

Students may pursue the following concentrations in biology:

  • Biomedical Science/Biotechnology
  • Ecology/Conservation/Environmental Biology
  • Pre-Medicine/Vet/Dental/PA
  • Pre-Allied Health

Job Prospects

Graduates with bachelor’s and master’s degrees in biology are expected to have additional opportunities in nonscientist jobs related to biology, in fields like sales, marketing, publishing, and research management. Non-Ph.D.s also may fill positions as science or engineering technicians or as medical health technologists and technicians. Some become high school biology teachers.

Biological scientists are less likely to lose their jobs during recessions than those in other occupations, because many are employed in the government, or on long-term research projects.
