Zoology (BA, BS)

Zoology is the study of animals: their anatomy, physiology, evolution and ecology. The major is appropriate for those desiring a degree in the natural sciences and whose main interest is in animals. Zoology is often chosen as a major by pre-professional students (pre-med, pre-vet, pre-dent, etc.).

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

Completion of the zoology major will provide the proper underlying preparation for post-graduate education (e.g., veterinary medicine, medicine, dentistry, optometry, or graduate school), as well as for entry-level jobs across a range of animal-related occupations.
