Biology Degrees Pepperdine Offers

Bachelor of Arts in Biology

Pepperdine students enrolled in the BA in biology degree option are provided with more flexibility in seeking a liberal arts education. Some biology majors select this degree because they are interested in either science education or a double major in another science or non-science discipline.

Bachelor of Science in Biology

Students in the BS in biology degree option receive more comprehensive exposure to biological complexity. This degree option prepares biology majors for advanced careers in the biological sciences.

Many of these careers involve continuing education through entry into professional schools (e.g., medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, optometry, etc.) and graduate school.
