Bachelor of Science in Biology

A bachelor’s degree in biology from California Baptist University is a great start toward many exciting career opportunities including medicine, pharmacy and environmental or biotechnology research. All CBU biology majors’ courses are taught by full-time faculty members whom you will interact with in the classroom and in the lab. Concentrations in for the biology major include Pre-Medical, Secondary Biology Education and General Biology.

This major requires participation in a research or internship opportunity. Students have opportunities to assist faculty members with research projects and possibly even teach a lab or lecture as a teaching assistant. These real-world experiences go far beyond a typical classroom setting. 90% of our biology students who have applied to medical programs have been accepted, and 100% of those who have applied to pharmacy programs over the last eight years have been accepted.

Our biology students are very involved with clubs and organizations that engage in a balance of fun activities and academic activities, such as bringing in guest speakers, attending conferences, and touring local businesses. The Health Sciences Society, Biology Club, Pre-Med Club, Pre-Dent Club, Pre-Pharm Club, and Pre-Vet Club have biology faculty advisors. The American Medical Student Association (AMSA) CBU Chapter, which is completely student-led, is also very active. 

If you are wondering what you can do with a biological sciences major, whatcanidowiththismajor.com is a great resource.

A biology minor is also available.
