B.S. in Biological Sciences

The South Georgia State College Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences (BSBS) offers students two options to engage in learning experiences that lead to rewarding careers. Students in the Nature and Ecology track will engage in study related to the unique ecological sites in the region and, upon completion, may seek advanced study or find employment in a variety of fields within governmental and private sectors. The Pre-Professional track is designed to meet prerequisite courses for entry into the professions of medicine, dentistry, pharmacology, and other health-related fields. Both tracks will cultivate personal responsibility for the environment and foster the importance of stewardship.

Student Achievements, Activities, & Events
SGSC hosts an Undergraduate Research Symposium where students present independent research projects on a topic of their choice. Many courses at SGSC participate in the research symposium and a variety of topics and subjects are represented. During the spring SGSC undergraduate research symposium, our BSBS senior students also presented a project they worked on in their senior seminar course. We have classes that conduct field work in Okefenokee Swamp, Jekyll Island, the Jacksonville Zoo, Broxton Rocks, General Coffee State Park, and much more!
