Biology Coursework Plan
All Biology degrees and degree plan options are supported by providing students with ready access to both academic and career advice provided by full-time undergraduate advisors and faculty members knowledgeable with a student's particular areas of academic and/or career interests. S.) which allows students to pursue biological careers requiring a greater knowledge base than provided by an undergraduate B. An application form is available from the undergraduate advisor (Room 345 or 346 LS).
Students are strongly encouraged to interact with departmental and faculty advisors throughout their academic careers, particularly through independent research under faculty supervision, to develop the skills and course work background that will allow them to achieve their future academic/career goals. A suggested course sequence for entering freshmen students for the first two years is: Transfer students interested in one of the degree programs in biology will, after admission to UT Arlington, be placed into pre-major status: BIOL intended, MEDT intended, or MICR intended major.
B.) degree, which provides greater opportunities to incorporate coursework outside the Biological Sciences major.
Students who pursue a bachelor of science degree will take more upper-division coursework than A. candidates and can choose from areas of interest such as molecular biology and genetics, animal behavior, plant growth and development, bioinformatics, marine biology, forensics and microbiology.
A patient receiving chemotherapy to help target and destroy the cancer invading her body.
Each of these situations, and every function of every living being, is within the scope of interest of a major in biological sciences.
The requirements to receive a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology can be achieved through degree plans under either of two options (i.e., General Biology, and Forensics Biology) detailed in this section. The General Biology Option is intended for students studying basic aspects of the biological sciences.
Students developing degree plans under the General Biology Option choose elective courses in Biology, other sciences, and nonscience areas to develop either a broad knowledge-base in Biology or to focus their studies in a particular area of Biology (a list of potential areas of study in Biology and the faculty who can assist students in developing degree plan programs in these areas is available from the undergraduate biology advisors). The option in forensics is intended to prepare students for a career in biological forensics by emphasizing relevant courses in biology and related disciplines.
He branched out to pursue minors in professional writing and communication, worked in a science lab and got involved in student government.
Transfer students will be evaluated for major status only after completing 11 hours in biology in residence at UT Arlington.
Students majoring in Biology, Microbiology, or Medical Technology are required to demonstrate computer use and oral communication competencies.
The General Biology Option will prepare students for careers in a variety of the Biological Sciences (including Health Professions, Genomics, Ecology/Environmental Studies, etc.) or for graduate study in Biology at the Master's or Ph. This option is designed for students who wish to seek employment in a forensics, DNA testing, or a police department laboratory upon graduation, and, as such, an internship ( A student who completes the special degree plan given below plus 16 months of clinical laboratory training in an accredited hospital school of medical technology may receive the degree of Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology, which will be conferred by The University of Texas at Arlington.
Graduates may become certified in medical technology by passing the examination of the Board of Registry of the American Society of Clinical Pathologists (ASCP).
