In the schedule of classes, subject areas are listed alphabetically by abbreviation.  To see all the classes offered by the department search for BIOL (biology), BMS (bio-medical sciences), BOT (botany), and ZOOL (zoology).  Hint:  Don't forget Zoology!

The Biological Sciences curriculum provides the foundation for our majors: Biological Sciences, Bio-Medical Sciences and Natural History. We offer specialized and general courses for all students, and support courses for medical technology and health services; recreation and nature interpretation; environmental studies; marine diving technology; and sports medicine. Many courses of a more general nature allow students to fulfill General Education and graduation requirements in Natural Sciences, while developing a biological perspective.
