Bachelor of Science in Biology

A bachelor’s degree in biology from California Baptist University is a great way to start down the path toward many exciting career opportunities including medicine, pharmacy and environmental or biotechnology research.

CBU’s team of expert biology instructors is concerned with more than just providing the coursework that is required to obtain a biology degree. They provide courses in genetics, microbiology, botany, cell and molecular biology, anatomy and physiology and truly care about you and want to help you be successful. All CBU biology majors’ courses are taught by full-time faculty members whom you will interact with in the classroom and in the lab. You will also have opportunities to work with faculty members assisting with research projects and possibly even teaching a lab or lecture as a teaching assistant—real-world experience that goes far beyond a typical classroom setting. This close interaction with faculty members will help you to choose a career goal that fits your strengths and to take the steps necessary to realize that goal.

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.

Career Opportunities

A B.S. degree in biology is the entry point for many exciting careers, including

  • Health Care (doctor, dentist, pharmacist, optometrist, physical therapist, chiropractor, podiatrist, dietician, occupational therapist, physician assistant, dental hygienist, etc.)
  • Working with animals or the environment (veterinarian, marine biologist, agricultural scientist, environmental scientist, conservation scientist, forester, zoologist, animal care worker, etc.)
  • Teaching at various levels (elementary school, middle school, high school, college, university, etc.)
  • ... and many other careers (food scientist, research scientist, pharmaceutical sales, park ranger, etc.)

Career prospects are plentiful for biologists!
