A major in biology offers a flexible program leading to many possible careers. Biology is defined as "the science dealing with life and life forms." Many students will find that a biology major is compatible with their career goals. The IU Southeast Biology Department offers two degrees:

Bachelor of Science
Bachelor of Arts

The B.S. in Biology provides a stronger background in science and math than the B.A. degree and will better prepare students for research-oriented careers as professional biologists and medical professionals. The degree may also serve as a terminal degree for a variety of biology professions. Students desiring eventual admission into a professional program or laboratory-related fields should follow the B.S. in Biology degree program.

The B.A. in Biology provides a stronger liberal arts track and exposes the student to major subject areas in biology while providing considerable flexibility for each student. This degree is suitable for students who may apply for admission into law school or for those who seek employment in business, environmental studies, teaching, or industry.
