The CSU Bakersfield Biology curriculum emphasizes hands-on inquiry based learning. Courses offered cover a broad spectrum of biological diversity, including animal, plant, and microbiology.
Undergraduate Biology majors choose the courses that interest them most and may select an area of emphasis in either botany, zoology, cellular and molecular biology, environmental, or pre-professional biology. The field of Biology is interdisciplinary and our curriculum reflects that by integrating studies in chemistry, mathematics, computer science, and other related subjects.
In the graduate program, CSUB offers a diverse curriculum that spans the fields of conservation biology, physiology, plant ecophysiology, plant anatomy, microbiology, molecular biology, evolution, ecology, systematics, and behavior.
