Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences

School of Arts and Sciences

If you are fascinated with the study of living things, then the College of Coastal Georgia has a program for you. A Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences prepares students for careers as professional biologists in a wide variety of fields.

Our program offers you the opportunity to select among three tracks of study: Coastal Ecology, Teacher Education at the Secondary level or a Pre-Professional pathway, for students who plan to go into medicine, veterinary medicine, bio-medical science, dentistry, pharmacy or physical therapy. Students will be immersed in interactive classroom and laboratory experiences as well as field experiences relating to their chosen track. The innovative and rigorous curriculum will prepare you for graduate studies in a chosen bio-medical science profession, or career opportunities such as secondary school science education, natural resource management, and ecological research.

Why Biology at Coastal Georgia?

The College’s coastal locale provides the ideal natural setting for field-directed learning in coastal ecology and marine science. The biology program’s affiliation with University of Georgia Marine Extension Service (MAREX), and the Skidaway Institute of Oceanography, provides exceptional undergraduate research and field experiences for coastal ecology students.

The pre-professional track provides excellent experiences to prepare you for graduate school, including the various examinations required in your chosen specialty. The experience, diversity, and qualifications of the CCGA Natural Science and Mathematics faculty provide students with the academic rigor and skills to succeed in their chosen area of study
