Functional Biology of Animals Concentration

 This course of study is designed to provide students with an understanding of animal physiology consistent with the expectations of medical and dental education programs, veterinary medicine programs, anatomy and physiology graduate programs, or a career in research (as a clinical or basic science research technician). The Cell and Molecular Concentration is also an option for students interested in medically related fields.

We strongly recommend that students preparing for careers in medically related fields take both BIOL 213 and 214. Students planning on careers in research or a research application field are encouraged to participate in a research experience (e.g., BIOL 491 Independent Research in Biology, BIOL 498 Honors Research or BIOL 499 Senior Thesis in Biology). Pre-clinical students are encouraged to participate in volunteer work or internships within a clinical setting.
