Biology degree provides options for science students

Penn State Berks has recently added a new bachelor of science degree in Biology to its academic programs to begin in the fall 2009 semester. The degree will be offered with two concentrations from which students can choose: the General Biology Option and the Genetics and Developmental Biology Option.

"Adding this degree will allow students more choices," explains Dr. Maureen Dunbar, Associate Professor of Biology and Program Coordinator for the B.S. in Biology degree.

The new degree is designed to prepare students for professions requiring competence in biological science and for gaining an understanding of the world of living things, according to Dunbar. Students majoring in the B.S. in Biology will be well prepared for graduate study, and for careers in medicine and health-related professions, as well as careers with various governmental agencies or industries having biological responsibilities.
