As a biology major, you will receive a broad education consisting of courses that focus on cells, invertebrates, plants, animals and humans. Ecology and environmental biology are stressed. Independent study opportunities exist at the Bluffton University Nature Preserve, greenhouse or in the Riley and Little Riley Creeks which flow through Bluffton.
This preparation will serve as a basis for entering fields such as teaching, biological research, medical professions, agriculture and naturalist fields.
