Microbiology B.A./B.S.



The Microbiology curriculum coupled with appropriate electives provides an excellent education base for students moving directly into the job market, for students headed toward medical, dental, medical technology, and veterinary programs, and for students going into graduate programs in the biological sciences. Students can choose from General or Medical Microbiology options and they can choose electives in prokaryotic microbiology, eukaryotic microbiology, biotechnology/genetic engineering, and infectious diseases.

Students in microbiology may obtain either the BA or BS degree. The requirements for a microbiology major, in addition to those requirements of the College of Arts and Sciences, are listed below:
