Our faculty strives to provide an innovative educational experience involving collaborative and independent achievements in the classroom, laboratory and field. Students regularly take field trips to various locations throughout the Keweenaw Peninsula as part of their coursework and study. Faculty also assist students in finding internships. It is our aspiration that you not only study, but also appreciate life, with all its inherent unity, diversity and intricacy.
A degree in Biology opens up a number of different career paths for graduates. Finlandia’s biology program prepares students to enter the workforce right after graduation or to continue their studies for an advanced degree. Our students normally pursue careers in environmental science or pre-med, however, the program can be tailored to a student’s interests.
You have the option of choosing between a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) or Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree. You do not need to decide which path you want at admission; you can decide in your 2nd or 3rd year. Both are great choices for your education. Explore the differences below:
Bachelor of Science
Bachelor of Arts
