Academic Programs

CSU Bakersfield offers both Bachelor of Science (B.S.) and Master of Science (M.S.) degrees in Biology. The B.S. in Biology carries an option for a concentration in Biotechnology.

In addition to the basic B.S. degree, Biology majors may choose to focus on Pre-Graduate School preparation, Pre-Medical/Allied Health preparation, or Clinical Science/Medical Technology.

We also offer a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree in Human Biological Sciences and a B.S. in Natural Sciences, for those students interested in becoming physician assistants or high school science teachers.

Students wondering which degree is the best choice for them are encouraged to explore the information contained in the links on this page, and to meet and discuss options with biology faculty.
