Majors & Minors

It is highly recommended that students take high school courses in biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics in preparation for a biology major.

First-year students who plan to major in biology are encouraged to enroll in BIO 015: Introduction to Biology, during the fall semester of their first year at Drake. Students have the responsibility to develop their program of study and review it with their faculty adviser in biology.

Students who earn a B.S. or B.A. degree in biology and who meet the entrance requirements may apply to schools of medicine, dentistry, optometry, podiatry, osteopathic medicine, chiropractic, veterinary medicine, physical therapy or other health related programs.

Further opportunities include advanced study in graduate school or career positions with industry, government or private agencies in biologically related fields such as biotechnology and conservation biology.
