The College of Science consists of the departments of Biology, Chemistry and Geology, Computer Science, Mathematics, Nursing, and Psychology and Sociology and programs in Health Science and Environmental Science.Department of BiologyThe Bachelor of Arts (BA) and Bachelor of Science (BS) programs in biology include a broad spectrum of exciting subjects. We seek to prepare broadly prepared individuals who can successfully specialize in graduate or health professional schools or seek immediate employment; however, a number of students select a degree in biology just because they find it a fascinating discipline. Biology can be a valuable minor that enhances employment opportunities in many fields.The BA degree in biology is designed for students who wish to exercise more control over the development of their degree program. Such students may wish to combine studies in biology with areas such as art, business, education, or political science. Happily, some students simply want a liberal education with its focus in biology. The BA program has been designed for such students; however, some students use the BA degree to seek admission into dental or medical school by adding a number of the courses required in the BS program. Students selecting the BA degree must complete a minor or an approved equivalent.The BS degree in biology represents the most appropriate preparation for those who wish to pursue post-graduate studies. The curriculum is built on a strong core in science with studies that explore the breadth and some of the depth of biology. The BS program provides the opportunity for each student to complete a required undergraduate research project. Students who are interested in entering graduate school, dental school, medical school, or a school of veterinary medicine, or who want a sound, comprehensive degree are urged to consider the BS degree.Learning by doing is the preferred teaching mode in the Department of Biology. There are opportunities to become involved in field or laboratory projects. The university is located in a unique ecological region of the southeast, and as a result opportunities in environmental biology are common. Labs have been equipped to explore new techniques in molecular and cellular biology. Our faculty represent a well-qualified and balanced diversity of the biological sub-fields, are eclectic in their interests, and work exceptionally well with one another and with students. As a community of learners we believe in high standards, hard work, and having fun! In order to declare a major in biology, a student will be required to have an overall GPA (including grades earned at other institutions) of 2.5 (without rounding up). Students must also have completed the following coursework prior to admittance into any of the junior-level core courses: Chemistry 1211, 1211L, and 1212 and 1212L; two additional laboratory science courses; Area A and Area D mathematics courses. Students must receive a grade of "C" or better for all classes required in the major. Classes with grades lower than a "C" cannot be used to satisfy prerequisite requirements for courses required in the major. We provide advising for the BA, BS, BS pre-professional, BS pre-veterinary, as well as pre-forestry and pre-pharmacy programs. To complete a degree in biology, students must obtain a minimum overall grade point average of 2.0 in all science courses applied to graduation.Special academic advisors are available to work with biology majors whose academic concentrations are in pre-dentistry, pre-medicine, and pre-veterinary medicine. To officially declare one of these concentrations, an entering student must have: a minimum SAT total score of 1000 or a minimum ACT composite score of 22 a minimum high school grade point average of 3.00 completed college preparatory curriculum requirements (Georgia high school graduates) Students not meeting these requirements may meet with pre-medical advisors for advice, but will be officially assigned to BA or BS advisors until they have: completed 30 semester hours completed CHEM 1211, CHEM 1212 (including labs), COMM 1110, and MATH 1127 maintained a minimum institutional grade point average of 3.00 Pre-veterinary medicine students must pursue the BS in biology; students with concentrations in pre-dentistry or pre-medicine may pursue either the BA or BS in biology. A special advisor has also been assigned to work with biology majors with a pre-pharmacy concentration. These students are assigned as BA in biology majors. Some students complete a four-year degree while others transfer to a pharmacy school after two or three years. There are no additional academic criteria for entrance into this concentration.As its mission the Department of Biology at Columbus State University is concerned with: undergraduate education and research in biology graduate education and research in biology, science education, and environmental science service to our geographic region in biology science education, and environmental science sustenance of a community of scholars engaged in developing the ways of knowing, habits of the mind, and operational skills characteristic of capable biologists Expected OutcomesGraduates will be able to: apply knowledge from mathematics, statistics, physical science, and chemistry to biological understanding develop an understanding of biological theory, concepts, and skills in the areas of cellular biology, molecular biology, genetics, organismic biology, ecology, population biology, and evolution think both individually and as members of collaborative groups, with a deliberate awareness of the process of critical thinking employ critical thinking to formulate questions and synthesize answers respect and enjoy the pursuit of knowledge and rational thought place biological understanding into historical and contemporary contexts appreciate and assess social implications of biological knowledge demonstrate an awareness of and appreciation for codes of conduct valued by most scientists communicate effectively by listening, speaking, reading, and writing apply appropriate communications technology apply technology and scientific method to biological inquiry assess opportunities and make personal decisions about career and life goals Department of Chemistry and GeologyChemistryGeology Pre-Engineering ProgramThe Department of Chemistry and Geology will evolve in directions which best serve the needs of our students and the regional community. Department activities are presently oriented toward undergraduate education in the physical sciences and engineering. However, we are committed to growth and expansion of the range of available services by development of the department into a center of the following: undergraduate education in the chemical, geological, and physical sciences and engineering graduate education in the chemical and earth sciences graduate education in environmental science consulting and advisory services for commercial and governmental concerns pure and applied research within the departmental disciplines, focusing on the particular needs and features of the region undergraduate education producing highly qualified certified teachers of Earth and Space Science providing breadth of graduate education in the sciences for masters in education candidates ChemistryThe baccalaureate degree programs in chemistry are designed to offer students a solid background in general, organic, inorganic, analytical, and physical chemistry as well as exposure to applied chemistry, biochemistry, spectroscopy, and instrumental analysis. Graduates are expected to appreciate both qualitative and quantitative interpretation, to think independently, and to apply skills and knowledge of chemistry to real-world problems. Because of the diverse goals of chemistry students, and needs of the region, three degree programs are available: Bachelor of Arts (BA), Bachelor of Arts and Secondary Education (BA), and Bachelor of Science (BS) degrees.BA in chemistry - The Bachelor of Arts degree program is designed for students interested in attending professional schools of medicine, dentistry or pharmacy, or in employment in fields such as chemical industry, business, sales, quality control and environmental occupations. In addition to the general degree requirements, theBA in chemistry requires satisfactory completion of courses in mathematics, physics, and biology. These provide a broad foundation in the field and permit flexibility for evolving and changing student interests. A broad range of upper-level elective courses exists to expose students to modern fields within the chemical sciences and to help students broaden their college experience. Faculty advisors work closely with students for careful planning of an individual student's program of study.BA in Chemistry and Secondary Education �The Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry and Secondary Education degree program is offered in collaboration with the College of Education. This program is designed for students interested in teaching chemistry at secondary level and/or pursuing graduate studies in chemical education/science education. In addition to the general degree requirements, the BA degree in Chemistry and Secondary Education requires satisfactory completion of courses in chemistry, mathematics and physics, as well as in education. The BAED curriculum provides a broad foundation in the field of chemistry and education and prepares graduates to teach chemistry at middle and/or high schools. A broad range of upper-level elective courses in chemistry exists to expose students to modern fields within the chemical sciences and to help students broaden their understanding of science teacher education. Moreover, students are sufficiently prepared to pursue graduate studies in chemical education/science education. Faculty advisors work closely with students for careful planning of an individual student's program of study.BS in chemistry - The Bachelor of Science in Chemistry degree program is recommended for students who desire to pursue graduate studies in chemistry or plan to enter the fields of industrial chemistry, chemical engineering, environmental chemistry, or government research laboratories. In addition to the general degree requirements, the BS in chemistry requires satisfactory completion of courses in chemistry, computer science, mathematics, and physics. These provide a broad foundation in the field and permit flexibility for evolving and changing student interests. A broad range of upper-level elective courses exists to expose students to modern techniques within the chemical sciences and to help students expand their college experience.
