Degree Programs

Degree Programs

The University of Wisconsin-River Falls Biology Department offers several degree options to prepare students for various careers in biology. All of the programs place heavy emphasis on undergraduate research as well as provide numerous opportunities for internships and international experiences.

Students seeking a Bachelors of Science Degree in Biology can choose from a Field Biology or General Biology plan. Field Biology focuses on natural resource management while General Biology is a track for students who are seeking a broad biology education or middle and high school education certifications. For Biology Education, visit the Broad Field Science Licensure Page.

We are happy to announce that starting in the Fall of 2019, the Biology Department at UWRF will be offering a  Degree in Biomedical and Health Science. This degree plan prepares students for health-related professions and laboratory research. Many students in Biomedical and Health Science participate in the Pre-Health Professional Program and move on to other schools for further medical degrees and licensures.

The biomedical track was previously an emphasis nestled under the Bachelor of Science Biology Degree. If you started at River Falls prior to the fall of 2019 and would like to switch from the biomedical subplan to the Biomedical and Health Science Degree, please contact your advisor or the biology office at 414 AGS/715-425-4508.
