SONS Biological Science Program
The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree program in Biology at Kean University has several related goals that are aligned with the University Mission.
The program offers an integrated curriculum of scientific concepts and principles as well as modern technological laboratory skills. The curriculum is designed to provide a strong foundation in classical and modern biology, and to prepare students to be lifelong learners ready to meet the challenges of an ever-changing global society.
The program provides an outstanding preparation for students interested in elementary or secondary school teaching, in life science positions in industry or government, or for graduate studies in biology. The program also provide sample opportunities for significant research experience to interested and qualified undergraduates.
In addition, students in this major are prepared to pursue the graduate degrees in Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Podiatric Medicine and Physician Assistant programs through articulation agreements with other institutions.
