The biology program at LMU is a comprehensive four-year program in which students take a broad variety of life science and chemistry courses.
The program offers two tracts: 1) pre-professional for those students considering medical school, pharmacy, veterinary science etc. and 2) ecology for those students considering careers in conservation. Internships are available for those interested in conservation. Students in the undergraduate program complete a research project in their junior and senior year under the supervision of a science faculty member.

The curriculum includes courses in molecular genetics, integrated vertebrate anatomy and physiology, microbiology, ecology, biochemistry and molecular cell biology.
A minor in biology is offered. Many biology majors minor in chemistry.
The minor is designed to augment the education of a student pursuing a major in another discipline. Often this additional focus provides an extra edge in pursuit of a position in business or entry into law school.
