B.S. in Biology

Biology Department Mission: The mission of the Department of Biology at Rogers State University is to support students in their pursuit of knowledge in biology and life science.

Degree Program Mission: Under the Bachelor of Science in Biology, there are two emphases: the Medical/Molecular emphasis and the Environmental Conservation emphasis. The four-year program seeks to develop a biologist well founded in either area of emphasis. The student integrates mathematical and physical science concepts into biology. The student uses the scientific method as well as evaluate others; use of this method of inquiry. He/she writes and presents scientific papers and reports. The degree in augmented with individual research and internships for successful postgraduate and professional careers.

Student Learning Outcomes:

  1. To demonstrate an understanding of the fundamental processes of life.
  2. To apply scientific method and interpret current technology and research techniques relating to the biological sciences.
  3. To apply good laboratory practice to minimize/eliminate potential laboratory hazards.
  4. To promote a positive learning environment in our classrooms and on campus.
  5. To be adequately prepared for transition into productive professional career.

Biology Department Mission: The mission of the Department of Biology at Rogers State University is to support students in their pursuit of knowledge in biology and life science.

Degree Program Mission: The Associate of Science in Biological Science consists of the general education curriculum and the supporting science courses. In support of the mission of the University, the school, and the department, the degree seeks to develop a student with a broad and diverse background in science and general education.

Student Learning Outcomes:

  1. Demonstrate an understanding of General Cellular processes.
  2. Apply understanding of the taxonomy, morphology, and physiology of the Animal and Plant Kingdom.
  3. Demonstrate an understanding of the atom, compounds, matter, gases, solutions, atomic theory, bonding chemical reactions, and chemical kinetics. The program outcome “chemical kinetics” Has been dropped as a program outcome.
  4. To provide a safe lab environment. This will change to “to apply good laboratory practice to minimize/eliminate potential laboratory hazards.
  5. To promote a positive learning environment in our classrooms and on campus.
