Bachelor of Science in Biology

This baccalaureate degree program is designed to provide the training in the major areas of biology while allowing sufficient flexibility to accommodate the specific interests of individual students.  All majors are required to take the biology core plus genetics.  The degree program requires a student to take at least one course in each of three major areas:  Biology of Organisms; Ecology, Evolution and Behavior; Cell and Regulatory Biology.   Additional courses allow the student to be exposed to the broad spectrum of biology through an array of advanced courses.  The degree program, with some modifications, also allows students to meet the course requirements for pre-professional (medical, dental, veterinary) graduate study. 

The program is based on a cohort model, where students follow a set of courses beginning in year one and progress through the program together.  Approximately three-fourths of the courses are LCCC courses with the remaining hours being offered by BGSU.  Students need a minimum of 30 semester hours of BGSU courses to graduate, most at the 3000 and 4000 levels, primarily in the sciences. 

Admission Requirements
Students who plan to enter this partnership should schedule an appointment with the University Partnership Office.

Students should apply for admission to Bowling Green State University the semester before they wish to enroll in BGSU courses.  The cost for application is $45 (online) or $50 (paper).  Students applying to BGSU must be in good standing, with at least a 2.5 or higher cumulative grade point average on a 4.0 scale.  Students with GPAs of 2.0-2.5 may be considered through the appeal process.
