The School of Natural Science offers a Bachelor of Science in Natural Science with special programs focused on pre-medical, pre-dental, pre-veterinary, pre-pharmacy, pre-physician assistant, and pre-physical therapy. All programs have a balance of courses in biology, chemistry, physics, and mathematics. A major in natural science is geared to prepare students for a broad range of science-based careers, as well as admission to professional and graduate schools.
The School of Natural Science offers the BS in Biology degree for students interested in strong, comprehensive biological studies. As a student in our biology program, you will gain a solid foundational understanding of biology and can explore further fields such as molecular biology, ecology, physiology, and organismal biology. You’ll go deeper in your understanding of biological concepts with supportive studies in mathematics, chemistry, and physics and gain the communication and critical thinking skills, essential to meeting the needs of the times, through general liberal arts study.
The Post-bachelor’s Certificate in Natural Science allows college graduates to pursue additional course work in preparation for a career in the health professions (medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, veterinary medicine, physical therapy and other allied health fields).
Whichever option you choose, you will benefit from participating in classes that are taught exclusively by Spalding University faculty members, not graduate students, like many other universities. Our small class sizes allow for personal interaction and individualized support from your instructors.
