Course Information

Biology Program and Degree Overview

Students who major in biology typically prepare themselves for careers in research, health care, environmental management, and education (in primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities, and at science museums, aquariums, zoos, parks and nature centers).

The job outlook in biology is promising. Specialty areas within the field of biology include biotechnology, forensic science, environmental policy, education and science writing. 

Concordia University Chicago’s Biology program offers a variety of courses that reflect the broad spectrum of studies in the biological sciences. Our liberal arts preparation is suitable for students wishing to pursue a career directly after graduation and for those continuing their education at the graduate level or in professional schools.

We offer both bachelor of arts and bachelor of science degree options. This allows you to choose the degree that best suits your needs. For those interested in studying biology in graduate school or pursuing a career in health sciences, a bachelor of science degree is recommended. Those interested in careers as a laboratory technician or in allied health care, such as nursing, should consider the bachelor of arts degree.

Prospective early childhood or elementary teachers select the biological sciences specialty area as a part of their preparation, which requires students to complete 18 hours of BIO courses in addition to the general studies science requirement. At least eight of these hours must be above the 1000 level.
