The field of biology is ideal for students who are deeply interested in how the natural world works and who want to learn more about it through targeted research. You can expect to take chemistry, math and liberal arts courses in addition to biology classes, plus you can choose a focus in areas such as botany, zoology, molecular biology or field biology. There’s even a biology teacher education concentration in conjunction with WOU’s College of Education.
The field of biology is quite diverse, which means a minor in biology can take many forms. Choose to focus on cell biology and genetics if you wish, or spend time learning about plants, animals and insects in field biology. Explore the world of science as you never have before.
