The Texas Wesleyan Biology Program offers two main undergraduate degree programs: the B.S in Biology, and the B.S. in Biology with Life Science Certification.

Each degree program consists of freshman/sophomore core courses in the biology of cells, organisms and populations, followed by a selection of advanced electives and a required two-semester research course. For students in the Life Science Certification program, there are additional requirements for education courses that prepare you for the secondary certification exam.

What can you do with a Biology degree?

Students who complete our degree program are prepared to work in biotechnology, teach in public or private schools or enter graduate programs in medicine or in other areas of advanced study.

Students who are interested in pre-health careers are supported through the department and through the Pre-Professional Program. We also offer the 3+4 Dental Early Admission Program (through UT-San Antonio).

If you are thinking about coming here to study biology, whether you are a entering freshman or transfer student, please contact us on the right for more information.

science majors. Biology is
literally changing every five to
six months, which forces me to
stay on my toes.
