Rowan's Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts in Biological Sciences provides a broad yet rigorous background in biology and related sciences along with the flexibility to build a specialty track that suits your career goals. Our program includes options for you to prepare for future careers in medicine, health professions, bioinformatics, cell biology, genetics, microbiology ecology, environmental science, botany, marine biology and zoology.
Rowan biology students enjoy small classes taught by faculty – not graduate students – and, unlike many larger universities, Rowan provides research opportunities for underclassmen. Rowan's proximity to biotech companies, the health industry, museums, and conservation or environmental facilities creates additional opportunities for internships and collaborative research.
While many biology-based career paths require advanced studies, a bachelor degree in Biological Sciences builds a strong base for additional post-graduate studies.
The Bachelor of Science degree will prepare you for graduate study in the sciences, medicine and other allied health fields. The Bachelor of Arts degree will prepare you for teaching, business or law careers.
