Elevate Your Love of Animals Into a Career

Household pets. Livestock. Even exotic and endangered species. Your love of animals knows no bounds. Now, turn your passion for God’s creation into a purposeful profession. Veterinarian medicine. Wildlife conservation. Zoo keeping. Sustainable farming methods. And more. How will you impact the world?

Interested in the ethics and economics of livestock production and management? Prefer to focus on animal behavior and health? Whatever your passion, pursue it through the biology BS program with an animal and environmental science concentration.

Experience Learning in Labs & Internships

Labs for Every Level of Experience

So, you want to major in biology, but you feel all thumbs in the lab? We love moving you quickly yet comfortably from beginning steps through lab mastery. Then it’s on to metabolism, immunology, and environmental interactions.

Ready, Set, Demonstrate

Research, writing, presentations—that’s your professional life in biology-based careers. We’ll show you how, through a sequence of seminars that lead into your senior project, a written and oral demonstration of your scientific know-how. Then you’re ready for work, professional training, or graduate research.

Environmental Internships

Explore your career path through an internship. Our environmental science students have interned with organizations including Greenville Zoo; Roper Mountain Science Center; and local, state, or federal agencies, private or public, that manage environmental quality.

Clinical Shadowing

Be a stronger candidate for a health care graduate school (med school, anyone?) and earn course credit for your clinical shadowing experience. We’ll connect you with some great options.
