UCF Biology

Degree Requirements

The core curriculum provides a background in chemical, mathematical, and physical sciences, as well as broad preparation in the biological sciences. Selection of electives, in consultation with a faculty advisor, permits emphasis of a subspecialty (e.g., molecular biology, conservation biology, marine biology).
