Biology examines the activity of organisms in the areas of function, growth, and evolution, as well as how these factors affect where the organism lives. It can further study how individual organisms interact within their environment.
Biology students may choose between the Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BS) degree tracks. Both tracks share the same core of biology and supporting courses
The Biology Department at Waldorf University seeks to prepare its students to take on various leadership roles in solving problems facing human societies. This requires that students learn to think critically and analytically – students must be successful not only in the classroom, but in their ability to use the tools of science. To accomplish this, the Department offers students a choice of programs that will prepare them for success either in graduate and professional schools, or for employment directly after graduation. In addition to these programs, the Waldorf Biology Department offers students opportunities that will help them become leaders in their chosen careers. Our alumni enjoy careers in human medicine (e.g., physicians, physical therapists, chiropractors, pharmacists), veterinary medicine, ecology (e.g., conservationists, marine biologists, park rangers), laboratory technology, education, and others....
