The Bachelor of Science in Biology is designed to provide both a broadly based introduction to the biological sciences and an opportunity for study and research at an advanced level. The program serves students with interests in pursuing careers in the health professions, secondary education, and professions requiring a fundamental knowledge and understanding of the biological world. Trinity students with biology degrees are successful in a broad range of careers, including health professions. Over the past 10 years, more than two thirds of our majors who applied to medical school have been accepted.
Through a combination of classroom study, laboratory experience, and research, Trinity students develop a thorough understanding of biological processes and the methods used to expand scientific knowledge. While our biology courses stress fundamental principles, students also have the opportunity to concentrate their studies in specific areas of interest, including animal behavior, biochemistry, cellular and molecular biology, developmental biology, evolution and ecology, genetics, immunology, microbiology, neurobiology, physiology, and plant biology.
Trinity also offers a minor in biology for those who complete 21 credit hours in the discipline.
