The biology department offers the following five specialized study tracks for students who have predetermined specific study and career goals: Cell and Molecular Biology; Ecology and Evolution; Marine Biology; Pre-Medical, Pre-Dental and Pre-Veterinary Studies; and Secondary Education. Required courses and other suggested courses for each track are given below. Students must plan their specific schedules in consultation with their biology adviser. Please note that these study tracks do not constitute separate degrees; they are courses of study within the BA and BS majors in biology.
Hofstra's dual degree programs allow you to earn both an undergraduate and graduate degree in less time than if each degree was pursued separately.
Build a strong career path in biology with hands-on, advanced research that will prepare you for professional studies, doctoral work, or employment in a variety of fields, including medicine, biotech, conservation, and education.
