Students who are on the B.S. track have two options:
1) B.S. Biology with research option: Students who choose the research option are required to take five biology electives. Additionally, they will take at least 2 credits of BIO 480 to conduct an independent research project under the guidance of a faculty member and present their findings in BIO 491 Senior Thesis.
2) B.S. Biology with the non-research option: Students who choose the non-research option are required to take six biology electives and present a paper on a topic prescribed by the BIO 491 Senior Thesis course. These students are not required to take BIO 480 Research.
