Maybe you can think of nothing better than dedicating your life to studying organisms. Perhaps you’re kind of obsessed with relationships between living things and the environment around them. If you’re interested in finding a fulfilling degree in the biomedical world – whether in research labs, for pharmaceutical companies, or as field biologists – or you know that you’re on your way to a graduate or professional program, a biology degree from Indiana University Kokomo is the degree for you! Prepare yourself for whatever comes next with a Bachelor of Science or a Bachelor of Arts in Biology from the School of Sciences.
As a biology major, you’ll learn and implement a variety of techniques and concepts to study living things. As a biologist involved in basic research, you’ll set out to discover how organisms work. Students in this program have all kinds of opportunities to go on trips where they go out into the field – or creek or Yellowstone National Park or woods – to see what they learn in the classroom and the lab in action. As a biologist involved in applied research, you’ll set out to develop or improve medical, industrial, or agricultural processes.
In addition to the extensive laboratory and classroom experiences offered through the biology program, research opportunities are also available through IU Kokomo’s Undergraduate Research Summer Institute (URSI) and through independent study courses. Our biology faculty are very active researchers and they closely work with undergraduates in their research programs.
