Biology students at Waldorf College are trained in the methods of scientific inquiry as they also are grounded in the principles of biology. We accomplish this through traditional classroom work, laboratories and field trips, and through supporting experiences, such as internships, summer assistantships, and research.
Biology is a story of survival. Biologists study living systems and ask questions about life, such as:
To answer these and other questions, the Biology Department prepares students for a variety of professions and careers. All students enrolling in biology will begin working toward a B.A. degree, a program that gives students a strong preparation in biology with supporting courses in mathematics, chemistry, and physics. It also allows students to combine this program with over 20 credits from other academic departments, a flexibility that allows students to pursue a minor in computers, communications, business, or other programs. Such interdisciplinary biology degrees will greatly strengthen a graduate's marketability in the competitive workplace.
The Biology Department is very proud of its track record. Many of our alumni now are physicians, nurses, physical therapists, optometrists, dietitians, veterinarians, biologists, park rangers, or farmers.
