The Department of Biological Sciences offers the Bachelor of Science in Biology. This degree is designed to meet the needs of students with a variety of career goals. Many of our students intend to enter professional programs in medicine, physician’s assistant, dentistry, veterinary medicine, pharmacy, physical therapy or occupational therapy after they complete their bachelor’s degrees at LSUA. Others plan to attend graduate school or pursue employment in one of the biology sub-disciplines such as cellular and molecular biology, microbiology, botany, zoology, physiology, or ecology. Another subset of the students is interested in the applied biological fields of wildlife biology, fisheries, or forestry.
