Department of Biological Sciences

The Department of Biological Sciences at Eastern Kentucky University offers a B.S degree with a broad range of degree concentrations in biology, biomedical sciences, and wildlife management.

Our programs offer students in-class and field training as well as research opportunities which help students prepare for their careers.

Our biomedical sciences degree program prepares students who plan to apply for professional schools in the areas of dentistry, medicine, physician assistant, optometry, and veterinary medicine. Students enrolled in these pre-professional programs work closely with the College of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics' pre-professional advisor to help them with entry exam preparation and preparing their applications.

Our M.S. program in biology provides students with thesis and non-thesis options. Students engaged in thesis work may conduct research in areas of aquatic biology, animal behavior and ecology, plant systematics and ecology, wildlife and conservation biology, physiological and molecular ecology, and biomedical sciences including cellular and molecular biology, and microbiology.
