The Biology Major at UW-Madison is a cross-college undergraduate major offered to students in both the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences and the College of Letters & Science. For administrative purposes, the major is housed in the departments of Bacteriology (CALS) and Zoology (L&S). The advisors serve students in both colleges, though for personnel purposes their positions are formally located within the Department of Bacteriology. The Biology Major academic advisors serve approximately 1,400 students. The Biology Major is designed for students who are interested in a broad exposure to the concepts and methodologies of the biological sciences, as well as those interested in a more specific sub-discipline. There are currently two specialized options within the major, in Evolutionary Biology and Plant Biology.
Bachelor's degree required.
Undergraduate or graduate education in the biological sciences and/or additional background in student advising, educational or counseling psychology, or another field related to job responsibilities are desirable.
