Students at Radford University can choose to major or minor in biology.

Those choosing biology as their major may select among four pathways/tracts to graduation:

  • Environmental Biology
  • Molecular Biology
  • Pre-health
  •     Visit our Pre-health advising pages HERE 
  • General Biology

Medical Technology is now a stand-alone major, Medical Laboratory Science, found HERE


Students in the 2017-2018 catalog and earlier are required to choose one of the above concentrations.
Students starting in the 2018-2019 catalog year no longer have the option to select concentrations in environmental biology, molecular biology, or pre-health. Instead, they can follow these same tracts, which include a list of suggested, but not required, biology electives. This allows for more flexibility in biology electives, so that students can work with their advisors to design the best-fit pathway through the major.
Ready to graduate? Your applications for graduation and petition to walk are found on the Forms page.
For those interested in pursuing a teaching career in K-12 schools, please visit our Future Science Educators page for more information about course requirements and suggested classes at Radford University.
Those who wish to minor in Biology simply need to complete 24 credit hours of biology courses.
