Biological Sciences Department

If you’re passionate about wanting to know how and why the natural world works, consider choosing a major in the Natural Sciences department. New scientists are needed along with people who can apply scientific knowledge to business and education.

A Natural Science major prepares students for entry-level professional science, laboratory, teaching and government jobs. Students can also prepare for graduate education in one of the sciences or in professions like medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, chiropractic or nursing.

Cooperative seminars at places like the Shedd Aquarium and Morton Arboretum and extensive laboratory requirements add depth to the department’s offerings. A number of students round out their undergraduate experiences with Dominican’s numerous independent research and internship opportunities.
