A broad reach
The biology program found within TROY’s College of Arts and Sciences stands at the core of the University’s biological and environmental sciences department. This program is one of the University’s most popular science-related majors with more students enrolled than any of the department’s other concentrations, programs or majors. This program’s popularity is attributed to the versatility of the program and the wide array of departmental courses offered to students. Do you plan to attend medical school or do you plan to teach in a classroom of your own one day? This program offers a wide variety of academic options to choose from to help you meet the diverse academic requirements of many professional schools, graduate schools and employment in the public and private sectors should you decide to pursue graduate- and doctoral-level degrees.
While similar to the bachelor's degree in general biology, TROY's bachelor's in biology requires its students to pursue a minor. This particular distinction allows you to add value to your degree and allows you to study in a related or un-related field that could help enhance more career opportunities.
