The Biology—Ecology, Evolution, and Organismal Biology (EEO) Emphasis degree program focuses on the structure, function, ecology, and evolution of organisms, with an emphasis on plants and animals. A diploma granted under this major will indicate “Bachelor of Science”; official transcripts will indicate Biology — Ecology, Evolution and Organismal Biology Emphasis.
Western’s Biology programs are based on an integrated conceptual foundation in biology, critical thinking skills, quantitative problem-solving abilities, leadership with team-building skills, and scientific research skills students obtain from lecture and laboratory courses. The foundational principles in the Biology (BS) curriculum are ultimately critical for post-baccalaureate studies and future job performance.
Because of the wide array of elective options for this major, the Ecology, Evolution, and Organismal Biology emphasis is a terrific degree for students interested in careers in field research, in veterinary medicine, or in pursuing graduate education in ecology, evolutionary biology, or organismal biology.
Western’s Biology Department is part of the College of Science and Engineering.
