Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by Level - A through Z

The biology major (BS) at Tusculum University exposes students to a wide variety of field, laboratory, internship, and classroom experiences fundamental to the study of life. The program is designed for students with broad interests in the biological sciences to prepare them for further studies in the health professions or in graduate research. Along with a rigorous background in biology, physics and chemistry are also stressed. Through the selection of concentrations, students can focus on specific areas of interest such as Medical Pre-Professional or Pre-Pharmacy, or students may select from a wide range of courses to meet their personal goals. Tusculum University has affiliation agreements with several professional schools, including Campbell University’s School of Pharmacy and Gatton College of Pharmacy at East Tennessee State University. Interested students should contact their advisors for more details.

Students may elect the Medical Pre-Professional Concentration of the biology major to apply to physical therapy school; however, additional course prerequisites for physical therapy programs such as PHED 390 - Physiology Of Exercise  may be required. Students should always check the course prerequisites for the professional school or graduate program to which they plan to apply and seek help from their advisor in planning a schedule.
