As you begin a new chapter in your life amidst the gorgeous East Texas Piney Woods that surround SFA, it is only natural to think deeply about the ecosystem that surrounds you. You might find yourself wondering how treefrogs communicate, which pharmaceuticals are derived from fungi or what principles of sexual selection fish use in choosing their mates.
Turn these curiosities into a serious course of study by pursuing a degree in biology. At SFA, world-class professors will lead you through an exploration of the organismal world. You’ll learn to problem-solve through the framework of the scientific method. And along the way, you’ll gain a refined perspective of life’s intricate beauty and its challenging complexity.
A natural career path
A biology degree provides a broad platform from which to jump into professional life. Make important scientific discoveries in lab or fieldwork, practice healthcare with further studies in medical, dental or veterinary school, or guide students through the study of life by teaching what you have learned.
Students wishing to pursue a master’s degree in biology may designate general biology as an emphasis, in which case graduate courses will be selected from all three biological areas (botany, cellular and molecular biology, ecology and evolutionary biology); or they can designate one of the three emphasis areas and focus their coursework primarily in that area. With approval from the student’s graduate committee, up to six semester hours of electives can includes courses outside the department.
