Hilbert is excited to offer our first Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) major in the biological sciences with our B.A. in Biology program! The Biology degree program will prepare students to enter professional programs in health care and veterinary services, all while professionally and ethically serving the community in line with the College’s mission.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, biological technician positions are expected to grow faster than average, at an increase of 10% between 2016-2026.
Hilbert’s new Biology degree is a four-year program which builds upon the current strengths of Hilbert College in the Forensic Science and Forensic Science: Crime Scene Investigation programs. The Biology program consists of 120 credit hours of undergraduate study, including courses in biology, chemistry, and physics. Students of the B.A. in Biology program will utilize Hilbert’s new, state of the art science laboratory to complement their coursework.
