From its intricate molecular machinations, to the function and form of organisms, and to the complexities of ecological communities, students gain an understanding of life through the entire spectrum of its properties. Students are provided the opportunity to learn through traditional coursework, extensive laboratory experience, and student-driven research projects. Advanced laboratories for molecular and microbiology experiments, a controlled desert garden and greenhouse facility, a marine reef aquarium, and extensive fieldwork in the unique ecosystems of the surrounding areas are some of the resources utilized for scientific study. The Bachelor of Science in Biology degree at DSU is designed to provide students with a firm foundation and understanding of the unifying concepts of Biology, including those at the molecular, cellular, and ecosystem levels. It is also essential that biology students develop a strong background in the areas of Chemistry, Physics, and Math because the comprehension and mastery of biological concepts is contingent upon the integration of these other sciences. All Biology students will complete a set of core courses focusing on general Biology, genetics, ecology, evolution, cellular and molecular biology, scientific writing, and data analysis. These core areas are intended to prepare an underlying support for further study in Biology. Upon completion of the core, students may select other upper-division Biology courses that allow them to explore and develop in one or more areas (zoology, botany, microbiology, ecological, or molecular) of their choosing. The versatility of the Biology degree prepares allow successful undergraduate Biology majors to enter professional programs in medicine, dentistry, and veterinary medicine, as well as other professional programs and graduate schools. Graduates of the Biology program may also opt for governmental or private-sector careers in such fields as natural resource management, environmental research, health care, the biomedical industry, independent laboratory research, or science teaching. The Bachelor of Science Biology, Secondary Education and the Bachelor of Science in Biology with Integrated Science, Secondary Education degrees at Dixie State University prepare students to become Biology teachers at the secondary level. Students who complete the Biology Education program will be recommended to the Utah State Office of Education for licensure to teach biology at the secondary education level (grades 7-2). The Biology with Integrated Science option prepares students to become middle level Science teachers. In addition to fulfilling the General Education requirements of Dixie State university, students will complete a set of core courses in the sciences plus 39 credits of Secondary Education Teacher (SET) courses taught through the Education Department that will satisfy the State of Utah requirements for secondary teachers. Students will also be required to take the appropriate PRAXIS II exam(s) for secondary licensure. Students are strongly encouraged to meet with an advisor in the Biology Department each semester to outline their programs of study and course sequences.

2 BIOLOGY CAREER INFORMATION CAREER STRATEGIES In addition to the required coursework, students can do the following to enhance their career opportunities: Develop excellent laboratory skills Take additional computer science and math courses to increase analytical skills Develop strong oral and written communication skills Maintain a high grade point average Gain related experience through part-time jobs, internships, or volunteer research Learn federal and state job application processes CAREER OPPORTUNITIES* This major prepares you for a multitude of employment possibilities including graduate schools and careers in biomedicine and research, allied health, private industry, and education. Many pre-medicine, predentistry and pre-veterinary science majors enroll in biology as their undergraduate major. Job opportunities in the biological sciences are as diverse as the science itself. A Biology degree prepares students for graduate or professional training in the biomedical sciences or employment in research, industry, or governmental agencies. JOB OUTLOOK* Employment of Biological scientists is projected to grow -6% between 200 and 2020, which is about average for all occupations. SALARY RANGE* Earning potential varies by industry. The median annual salary for a bachelor s degree graduate in the Biological Sciences is about $39,020, which is 20% above the average for all occupations. Those who earn advanced degrees in areas such as microbiology, genetics, botany, or bio-technology can expect to more than double entry level salaries of baccalaureate graduates. BIOLOGY EDUCATION CAREER INFORMATION CAREER STRATEGIES In addition to the required coursework, students can do the following to enhance their career opportunities: Develop excellent laboratory skills Take additional computer science and math courses Develop strong oral and written communication skills Maintain a high grade point average Gain related experience through part-time jobs, internships or volunteer research Be well-prepared for student teaching experience CAREER OPPORTUNITIES* Teaching is a very rewarding and noble profession, and most teachers find their jobs fulfilling, especially for those who love what they teach and enjoy working with young people. Current employment opportunities for graduates from Biology Education programs are strong, particularly for those who also have a chemistry endorsement or integrated science endorsement. JOB OUTLOOK* The demand for secondary science teachers will continue at a growth rate of 5-7% until Population growth and a need to replace retiring biology teachers will contribute to a steady demand, which is highest in rural areas and low-income communities. SALARY RANGE* The median salary for a middle or high school teacher is $5,960 to $53,230, with an average starting salary of about $33,000 in Utah (all are 9-month contracts). Many schools report difficulty in filling teaching positions in math and science, so teachers in those subjects should have better job prospects, and steady salary increases can be obtained by furthering one s education. *Information from the Occupational Outlook Handbook, 202 Bachelor of Science in Biology 20 credits The Bachelor of Science in Biology degree has four basic components:. General Education and Institutional Requirements (some may also be included in program requirements) 2. Biology program requirements in Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics 3.
