Biology Comprehensive - Health Science Emphasis

Students in the Biology Comprehensive program at the University of Nebraska at Kearney learn how living organisms function, behave and interact, as well as how they develop, reproduce and evolve. Students at UNK will gain a solid foundation in biological and physical sciences and have opportunity to work one-on-one with professors who are specialized in various fields.

Undergraduates take a wide variety of biology classes, including both laboratory and field electives. Because of this broader study in biology, no minor is required to graduate.
