Biology - Pre-Physical Therapy Concentration

Degree Awarded:  Bachelor of Science




The major in biology prepares students for several different career options. Students may gain admittance to medical, dental or veterinary school, pursue graduate study or seek employment in research or industry.

Those preparing to teach biology in secondary schools should complete courses in a biology concentration in conjunction with education licensure requirements within Lake Erie College's education department. The courses in the biology major provide students with a broad background in biology and chemistry, opportunities for elective courses and a culminating independent research project during the senior year.

Biology students should seek advice from the pre-professional advisors to insure that course selections will be appropriate for admission to the graduate or professional schools of their choice. Additional chemistry, mathematics and physics coursework may be required for admission to graduate or professional programs.
