Undergraduate Programs

Bachelor of Science Degree in Microbiology and Immunology

The Bachelor of Science degree in Microbiology and Immunology is designed to prepare students for professional careers in the medical and health service fields, research, industry, education, and as specialists in industrial quality testing and control, and as regulatory workers in government agencies and public health laboratories. The program of study is structured around a comprehensive core curriculum that is similar to the Biology degree but upper-division level coursework is designed to achieve a deeper education in several specialized areas of microbiology.

Due to extensive curriculum overlap, students cannot receive a double major in Biology and Microbiology and Immunology. Students must choose between a B.S. in Biology or a B.S. in Microbiology and Immunology.


Please refer to the Microbiology and Immunology (BS) Admission Requirements for details on the admissions process.
