Biology & Environmental Science

pam with studentBiology

Travel, conduct your own research, gain internship experience, work with professors, take classes you care about, and get prepared for a career. That's what Heidelberg can offer you. In our biology program, you get to call the shots for your own education. With a faculty that loves teaching, they not only encourage you to explore and expand, but they'll also help you do it. 

A major in biology can take you places. Thinking about allied health, podiatry, dentistry, medicine, veterinary medicine, medical technology, nursing, pharmacology, physical therapy, public health, agriculture, horticulture, agronomy, forestry, plant pathology, entomology, environmental management or forensic biology. You could also decide to head to graduate school or medical school.
