Welcome to the Department of Natural Sciences at Bowie State University.
The mission of the Department of Natural Sciences is to assist the University in meeting its mission and goals by providing a quality education in science and technology, thereby enabling the students to achieve their educational goals. The department offers a Bachelor of Science degree in biology with two options: biology and biology education.
The BS degree program is structured such that a student successfully completing the curriculum is prepared for graduate and professional school. We value each student and are committed to providing the necessary guidance, advisement, and a biology curriculum that is supported by up-to-date pedagogy.
Biology represents a discipline that utilizes numerous other disciplines to present a total picture of the world. Hence, a student is exposed to chemistry, mathematics, physics, computer science, arts and humanities, and the social sciences. Understanding the relatedness of the various disciplines is key.
