The Biology Major at Tusculum College exposes students to a wide variety of field, laboratory, study-abroad, internship and classroom experiences fundamental to the study of life.
The program is designed for students with broad interests in the biological sciences to prepare them for further studies in the health professions or in graduate research. The program also allows them to fulfill requirements for teacher certification. Along with a rigorous background in biology, the sciences relevant to biology, physics and chemistry, are also stressed.
Through the selection of concentrations, students can focus on specific areas of interest, such as Teacher Licensure in Biology, Medical Pre-Professional, Medical Technology
