NNU’s Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology is a multidisciplinary degree focusing on broad biology fundamentals with a choice of emphasis in general biology or biology education. These areas of study are ideal for students pursuing graduate programs or a career in secondary education. To make sure the student’s education includes much more than a textbook, NNU professors focus on hands-on learning in labs and offer summer research opportunities with professor-student collaboration.
