Bachelor of Science in Biology

Are you ready to be part of the biotechnological revolution? If so, Lawrence Tech’s Bachelor of Science in Biology can prepare you for a fulfilling science career. Imagine working alongside professionals at the forefront of today’s modern advances in biology and medicine!

While molecular and cell biologists study cells and molecules, they seek to understand how these crucial components integrate into the biological whole, investigations that lead to advanced knowledge. In the last half of the 20th century alone, scientists developed a greater understanding of proteins and nucleic acids, which revealed the way individual cells function as “chemical factories.” They also learned how larger organisms are equivalent to complex economies. The very essence of any biological organism is encoded in its DNA, and its continuing existence and functional development depend on a delicate molecular ballet.

If you are a hands-on student who is excited and inspired by scientific discoveries like these, LTU’s molecular and cell biology program may be for you. Highlights include: 

  • Degree is the first of its kind in southeastern Michigan
