Southern Vermont College

The Biological Sciences degree program is designed to stimulate intellectual and personal growth through an examination of the fundamental properties of living systems, the application of experimental and descriptive methods of discovery, and the consideration of the social, ethical, and aesthetic aspects of biological knowledge. Both the rigor and flexibility of the program will help students enter employment or post-baccalaureate studies with a competitive advantage, while allowing students to choose an individualized course of study with an emphasis in Ecology and Environment, Cellular and Molecular Biology, or Pre-Professional Studies.

The Biological Sciences degree program will prepare students for careers in the biological sciences, give students the opportunity to pursue graduate degrees in the biological sciences and to provide students with the preparation necessary to pursue professional programs in the medical sciences.
