State Approves Offering of Biology Degree
April 11, 2012
Students at Lindenwood University-Belleville can now earn a bachelor of science degree in biology; the Illinois Board of Higher Education approved the new degree on April 10.
“This new degree is an expansion of our natural science program and has proven popular with students considering advanced degrees in natural sciences and health,” said Dr. Todd Mick, dean of academics.
Course requirements for the undergraduate biology degree will be featured in the 2012-13 academic catalog.
“I am excited to welcome the students this fine degree will attract to our campus,” said Dr. Angela Wingo, dean of students. “I am certain this program will enhance and diversify our future student population.”
In conjunction with the introduction of a biology degree to Lindenwood-Belleville, the campus is also gearing up to begin construction of a state-of-the-art chemistry lab scheduled to be completed in time for students’ return in August. Mick says the campus will hire a full-time chemist for the 2012-13 academic year as well.
