How To Prepare for a Degree Program in Biology
Biology, today more than ever, is the application of chemistry, physics, and mathematics to life processes. We offer a rigorous program that requires knowledge of basic science concepts to understand biology, along with a reasonable amount of quantitative analysis in the form of probability, statistics, graph interpretation and other mathematical applications.
We recommend that our majors begin their first biology course with at least some background in chemistry, and we encourage students to take college chemistry soon after entering our department. We favor mathematics and physics over additional biology courses in high school (e.g. anatomy). This is not only a recommendation for our department, but all University of North Georgia (North Georgia) science courses, and any university science program in general.
In other words take as many chemistry, physics and mathematics classes as you can in high school.
