Disciplines that focus on the study of human beings, animals, plants, and organisms at the micro level are the life sciences. Students initially study introductory biology, chemistry, physics, math and then focus on more specific life science courses that give them preparation for careers in research, industry, business, government and more. These majors provide excellent background for professional schools-medical, dental, optometry, as well as programs in pharmacy, nursing, physician assistant, physical therapy and other health science programs.
