Undergraduate Program

Why Major in Biology?

At Georgia Southern University we offer a full-service Biology department. With a bachelor’s degree in biology, you can receive broad training across sub-disciplines, or you can tailor a very specific degree plan for your particular interests – including molecular biology, zoology, botany, ecology, evolution, and conservation biology.

The Biology major is designed for students who are interested in:

  • A broad exposure to the concepts and methodologies of the biological sciences
  • A specific sub-discipline
  • Post-graduate careers in any biological science or health profession
  • Non-biological careers such as education or another science like chemistry

You determine the focus of your program at one of the best colleges in Georgia for biology, with help from an advisor. Because our faculty members are highly involved, you will enjoy hands-on experiences via direct instruction from excellent teachers and researchers.

You can access resources for transfer students and students just starting out at the COSM Advisement Center.
