BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES

Bachelor of Science

Biology encompasses the broad spectrum of the modern life sciences, including the study of all aspects of life from the structure and function of the whole organism down to the subcellular levels and up through the interactions of organisms to the integrated existence of life on the entire planet. Descriptive, structural, functional, and evolutionary questions are explored through the hierarchy of the organization of life. Applications of current advances to the health and well-being of man and society, to nature and the continuation of earth as a balanced ecosystem, and to an appreciation of the place of natural science in our cultural heritage receive emphasis.

Majors in Biological Sciences receive classroom, laboratory, and field training in biology with an emphasis on chemistry, mathematics, and physics as necessary tools. The Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences curriculum prepares students for graduate study in any of the life science areas (such as agricultural sciences, biochemistry, botany, cell and molecular biology, conservation, ecology and environmental science, entomology, forestry, genetics, industrial and regulatory biology, microbiology, morphology, physiology, wildlife biology, and zoology; for the health professions (medicine, dentistry, etc.), veterinary medicine; and for science teaching.
 

Combined Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences/Master of Science in Bioengineering

Under this plan, students may reduce the time necessary to earn both degrees by applying graduate credits to both undergraduate and graduate program requirements. See Academic Regulations for enrollment guidelines and procedures.

Students are encouraged to obtain the specific requirements for the dual degree from the Department of Biological Sciences or Bioengineering as early as possible in their undergraduate program as a number of required courses have prerequisites not normally taken by Biological Sciences majors.

BIOSYSTEMS ENGINEERING

Bachelor of Science

The Biosystems Engineering program is admin-istered jointly with the College of Engineering and Science. See College of Engineering and Science for the curriculum.


ENVIRONMENTAL AND NATURAL RESOURCES

Bachelor of Science

The Environmental and Natural Resources curriculum produces professionals who have a broad-based knowledge in natural resources and an ability to interact with other resource professionals to provide thoughtful solutions to environmental and natural resource problems. The world is blessed with an abundance of natural resources, but the problems associated with their conservation are immense. Protection of rare and endangered species, preventing and controlling invasions of exotics, protecting old growth forests, restoring degraded ecosystems, and balancing the resource demands of industry and the public are some of the environmental issues which are enmeshed in politicized environments.

Three concentations are offered within the Environmental and Natural Resources major. The Conservation Biology Concentration is oriented toward students who desire a greater exposure to taxa, their habitats and their interrelationships. The Natural Resource and Economic Policy Concentration provides more in-depth study in economics and policy applications. The Natural Resources Management Concentration emphasizes both resource management and negotiation skills.

Graduates in Environmental and Natural Resources are well-prepared for further graduate studies in natural resources and related fields. Potential public sector employers of graduates include federal, state, and municipal resource management agencies, private industries impacting land and water resources, environmental management consulting firms, and various environmental advocacy groups.

FOOD SCIENCE

Bachelor of Science

Food Science majors apply principles of basic and applied sciences to the design, creation, manufacture, packaging, distribution, and utilization of safe, nutritious, and enjoyable foods and food products. The curriculum allows flexibility for concentrating in one of two areas.

In the Food Science and Technology Concentration, students may emphasize business, culinary science, (one of three national programs that have been approved by the Research Chef's Association as CulinologyTM), engineering, food packaging, and additional sciences that complement requirements of the Institute of Food Technologists.

The Nutrition and Dietetics Concentration emphasizes nutrition and related areas. It is currently granted approval status by the Commission on Accreditation for Dietetics Education of the American Dietetic Association.

Food processing industries, ingredient manufacturers, and packaging suppliers employ graduates in new food product development, quality assurance, production management, and technical sales. State and federal agencies also need graduates for food safety and regulatory positions. With the Nutrition and Dietetics Concentration, employment opportunities include dietitians, nutritionists, consultants, and food specialists. Placement rates are high for these fields, and graduates are also well prepared to pursue graduate study in many areas.

The Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition also offers an accelerated five-year combined bachelor's/master's program that allows students to count up to twelve hours of graduate credit toward both the BS degree in Food Science and MS degree in Food, Nutrition, and Culinary Sciences. Details are available from the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition.

FOREST RESOURCE MANAGEMENT

Bachelor of Science

The Forest Resource Management curriculum combines a broad education in the arts and sciences with applied forest sciences. This combination provides the necessary foundation for the scientific management of forest resources, products, and services.

Foresters are qualified for a broad spectrum of employment opportunities in the public and private sectors. They may be engaged as managers, administrators, or owners of forest lands or forest-based businesses; as technical specialists in the production of timber, useable water, wildlife, and aesthetic values, and in the recreational use of the forest; or as professionals in other areas where the conservation of natural resources is a concern. Foresters earning advanced degrees find employment in academic work and in research conducted by public and private agencies.

The curriculum, accredited by the Society of American Foresters, provides a strong program in the basic knowledge and skills required of a professional forester. Forest Resource Management majors will select a minor. (Acceptable minors are listed below.) The curriculum also provides the necessary prerequisites for graduate study.

GENETICS

Bachelor of Science

Genetics is the study of heredity. Genetics research takes many forms, from the study of heredity at the level of individual molecules to study at the level of cells and chromosomes, individuals, or populations. To comprehend current genetic information and to make future contributions to our molecular understanding of life processes, students must obtain a broad background in biology and a firm foundation in chemistry and mathematics. This is the basis of the genetics curriculum.

A degree in Genetics is a strong preparation for many careers. The degree provides an excellent foundation for medical, veterinary, or pharmacy school as well as graduate research in any discipline related to biology, including bioinformatics, forensic technology, and genetic counseling. Because of the increasing emphasis on genetics in everyday life, a Bachelor of Science in Genetics can also be a direct path to a career in the emerging biotechnology industries (pharmaceuticals, agricultural technologies, biomimetic minerals) either in research, sales, or business operations. Combined with a law degree, a genetics bachelor of science is a good background for a career as a patent attorney.

HORTICULTURE

Bachelor of Science

Horticulture is the art, science, and business of food crops, ornamental plants, and turfgrasses and their production, utilization, and maintenance. A strong foundation in the basic sciences and humanities is built on courses in mathematics, chemistry, botany, physics, computer science, communications, economics, and humanities. Horticulture as a science depends on disciplines such as plant pathology, plant physiology, entomology, forestry, agronomy, soils, agricultural engineering, and agricultural economics. Business courses contribute to a well-rounded curriculum. A growing aspect of horticulture involves the management of enterprises, from production to distribution and marketing. Horticulture as an art involves the arrangement of plants in an aesthetically pleasing fashion.

Students begin professional development as undergraduates. An internship in a horticultural enterprise is required. Students considering graduate school are advised to take optional courses in the basic sciences as well as conduct an undergraduate research project. Those with strong interests in specific disciplines may complete special problems under the supervision of a faculty member.

MICROBIOLOGY

Bachelor of Science

Microbiology deals with the study of bacteria, viruses, yeasts, filamentous fungi, protozoa, and unicellular algae. Microbiologists seek to describe these organisms in terms of their structures, functions, and processes of reproduction, growth, and death at both the cellular and molecular levels. They are also concerned with their ecology, particularly in regard to their pathological effects on man, and with their economic importance.

The Microbiology major provides a thorough training in the basic microbiological skills. Further, students receive instruction in mathematics, physics, chemistry, and biochemistry, all essential to the training of a modern microbiologist. Students can prepare for a variety of careers through a wide choice of electives. The Microbiology curriculum with a Biomedicine Concentration is recommended for students planning postgraduate programs. Microbiology graduates may enter graduate school in microbiology, biochemistry, bioengineering, or related disciplines; they may enter medical or dental schools or pursue careers in one of the many industries or public service departments dependent upon microbiology. Some of these are the fermentation and drug industries, medical and public health microbiology, various food industries, and agriculture.

Microbiology majors planning to apply for admission to a medical or dental school should inform their advisors immediately upon entering the program.

PREPROFESSIONAL HEALTH STUDIES

Non-degree

The health professions need individuals with a diversity of educational backgrounds and a wide variety of talents and interests. The philosophies of education, the specific preprofessional course requirements, the noncognitive qualifications for enrollment, and the systems of training vary among the professional health schools; but all recognize the desirability of a broad educationa good foundation in the natural sciences, highly developed communication skills, and a solid background in the humanities and social sciences. The absolute requirements for admission to professional health schools are limited to allow latitude for developing individualized undergraduate programs of study; however, most schools of medicine and dentistry require 16 semester hours of chemistry, including organic chemistry, eight hours of biological sciences, eight hours of physics, and at least one course in calculus. These requirements should be balanced with courses in vocabulary building, the humanities, and social sciences. The basic requirements in the natural sciences and as many of the courses in the humanities and social sciences as possible should be completed by the third year so that students will be prepared to take the Dental Admission Test or the Medical College Admission Test prior to applying to a professional school.

Undergraduates may also prepare to study optometry, podiatry, and other health professions. While the basic requirements for these professional schools are essentially the same as those for schools of medicine and dentistry, specific requirements for individual schools in these professions vary somewhat; consequently, interested students are advised to consult with the chief health professionals advisor.

At Clemson, rather than having a separate, organized preprofessional health study program, students are allowed to major in any curriculum, as long as the basic entrance requirements of the professional health school are fulfilled. These schools are not as concerned about a student's major as they are about academic performance whichever curriculum the student chooses. Professional health schools have neither preferences nor prejudices concerning any curriculum, which is evidenced by the fact that their entering students represent a broad spectrum of curricula. The emphasis is placed on the student's doing well in the curriculum chosen, and this becomes critical as competition increases for the limited number of places available in professional health schools.
 

PREPHARMACY

Prepharmacy is a two-year program requiring a minimum of 72 semester hours. Upon completion of the curriculum, students will be eligible to apply to a college of pharmacy, usually the Medical University of South Carolina or the University of South Carolina, and may be eligible to apply for the Bachelor of Science in Preprofessional Studies6. The degree in Pharmacy is awarded by the institution attended. It is important for students to work closely with their advisor as there are variations in courses required by the pharmacy schools.

For financial aid purposes, students in the Prepharmacy program are considered to be enrolled in a degree-seeking program.

PREREHABILITATION SCIENCES

Prerehabilitation Sciences includes concentrations in physical therapy, occupational therapy, physician assistant, and allied health areas. This curriculum is designed to meet the requirements of the rehabilitation medicine programs at the Medical University of South Carolina and other professional schools. This program requires a minimum of 90 semester hours of undergraduate coursework. In addition, students must apply to a professional school for acceptance into its program.

Because preparation of some of the concentrations requires three years or a BS degree in any area, students are advised to select a major with similar requirements after consultation with the Prerehabili-tation Sciences advisor. The following curriculum fulfills the general requirements for those fields, requiring only two years of prerequisites. The Pre-physical Therapy and Preoccupational Therapy concentrations require an additional year of electives and/or a BS degree. Electives should be chosen after consultation with the advisor. Professional schools may change their requirements at any time, so it is imperative that students in this major stay in close contact with their advisor.

For financial aid purposes, students in the Prere-habilitation Sciences program are considered to be enrolled in a degree-seeking program.

PREVETERINARY MEDICINE

Under a regional plan, the South Carolina Prevet-erinary Advisory Committee coordinates a program for South Carolina residents who are interested in pursuing careers in veterinary medicine. South Carolina residents attending any college or university may apply through the Veterinary Medical College Application Service (VMCAS) to the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine. Currently the University of Georgia admits up to 17 students each year through arrangements with the Southern Regional Education Board. The State of South Carolina also has a contract with Tuskegee University to admit up to four South Carolina residents. Application must be made directly to Tuskegee University.

Minimum requirements for admission to a college of veterinary medicine generally include the satisfactory completion of prescribed courses in a well-rounded undergraduate degree program. Specific requirements for admission to the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine include the following undergraduate courses: six credits of English, 14 credits of humanities and social studies, eight of physics, eight of general biology, eight credits of advanced biology, three credits of biochemistry, and 16 credits of organic and inorganic chemistry. (Chemistry and physics courses must be at the premedical level; they may not be survey courses.)

To be in the best competitive position, applicants should complete courses in animal agriculture, genetics, nutrition, biochemistry, and advanced biology. Considerations for selection are character, scholastic achievement, personality, experience
with large and small animals, general knowledge, and motivation. In the past, competition has been keen, and only those applicants who have shown exceptional ability have been admitted. Specific considerations may include a minimal grade-point average and completion of standardized tests such as the Graduate Record Examination and the Veterinary College Admission Test.

Since out-of-state students attending Clemson are ineligible to apply to the University of Georgia or Tuskegee University under the South Carolina quota, they should contact the college(s) of veterinary medicine to which they plan to apply. They may apply at the University of Georgia for at-large admission.

Veterinary schools accept students with a broad range of academic backgrounds; therefore, it is recommended that the beginning university student select any undergraduate major and simultaneously complete the courses required for veterinary school entrance and those required for completion of a BS or BA degree. For students selecting Animal and Veterinary Sciences or Biological Sciences at Clemson University, the basic curricula have been designed to accommodate Georgia's entrance requirements. Further information is available from the Department of Animal and Veterinary Sciences at 864-656-3427.

WILDLIFE AND FISHERIES BIOLOGY

Bachelor of Science

Increased interest in conservation of natural resources and the environment and demand for seafood products have resulted in these areas becoming increasingly technical and requiring highly qualified wildlife and fisheries biologists. Greatest demands for graduates are in the areas of management, research, survey, and regulatory positions with state and federal agencies; industrial research and quality control laboratories; conservation, recreational, and other public service agencies; and private enterprises.

The Bachelor of Science degree program in Wildlife and Fisheries Biology provides a solid foundation for many careers in the sciences. The curriculum is strong in basic and applied sciences, communication skills, and the social sciences. In addition, three credit hours are available for field training with appropriate natural resource agencies. Students may satisfy coursework requirements for professional certification by the Wildlife Society and/or the American Fisheries Society.

Combined Bachelor of Science/Master of Science Degree Program

Under this plan, students may reduce the time necessary to earn both degrees by applying graduate credits to both undergraduate and graduate program requirements.

Students are encouraged to obtain the specific requirements for the dual degree from the Department of Forestry and Natural Resources as early as possible in their undergraduate program as a number of required courses have prerequisites not normally taken by Wildlife and Fisheries Biology majors. Enrollment guidelines and procedures can be found under Academic Regulations.
