Success is in Sight
The Bachelor of Arts (B.A) or Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Biology is for the student who wishes to engage in the knowledge and the tools to understand — perhaps even uncover — the latest discoveries in an effort to solve complex problems and enrich lives.
At Olivet, students encounter and learn about science and the scientific process. They develop critical thinking, analysis and communication skills. They do research, apply the scientific method and do investigation. They ask questions, develop hypotheses, collect and interpret data. They develop skills in scientific writing and presentation.
Olivet is committed to preparing students for the next steps as they pursue a career in biology. Graduates consistently exceed the national average when it comes to acceptance rates into graduate programs and medical school.
In addition to completing a required research project, many biology students are actively involved with job shadowing healthcare professionals and medical mission trips to put their knowledge to work.
