Biology Tracks

There are many ways to devise a major in the Biology Department and some students may wish to consult the potential concentrations listed below. They may be useful in planning to take the courses that will prepare you for your post-graduate careers and graduate or medical school. In developing a major you will discuss various options with your advisor, who may make other suggestions based on your interests. No student has to follow any of these tracks; they are simply possibilities.
