The Department of Biology offers courses of study leading to either the Associate of Science degree or the Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Biology. The B.S. degree is offered on both the Dahlonega and Gainesville campuses. Students may begin their B.S. degree on any UNG campus and then complete the program on either Dahlonega or Gainesville campuses. In addition to courses, the department offers advisement for application to a variety of graduate and professional programs (e.g., biology, medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, pharmacy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, physician assistant, and respiratory therapy). Students should consult their academic advisor for assistance in choosing courses that both comply with degree requirements for a major in Biology and meet the admission requirements for the graduate career or professional program in which they have interest. Students wanting to obtain secondary education teacher certification in physics usually complete the B.S. degree in Biology and then get certified through the post-baccalaureate or Master of Arts in Teaching programs in the College of Education.
