Department of Biology and Chemistry
Students who want an excellent science education with outstanding teachers, small classes and opportunities to take part in interesting and significant research can find those things at Purdue University North Central.
Our full-time faculty members are well-known in their fields. They are here because they want to work with undergraduates. They go out of their way to offer students the opportunity to learn and grow in the sciences. PNC's Biology and Chemistry faculty focus on the environment of Indiana to let student research flow easily from project to project throughout the educational experience.
The Bachelor of Science in Biology has concentrations in: ecology, microbiology, pre-dentistry, pre-medicine, or pre-veterinary medicine. A minor in Ecology and a minor in Chemistry for biology majors is also available. For more information on degree programs and courses, see the PNC General Catalog.
The Biology/Chemistry Department offers programs specifically for transfer to programs not available on our campus. These include two programs, Agriculture and Pre-Pharmacy.
Purdue North Central does not offer a Bachelor Degree in Agriculture. However, students may elect to complete a general suggested one-year course of study (PDF - requires Adobe Acrobat Reader) at Purdue North Central before transferring to a West Lafayette Campus program.
Pharmacy majors may only be completed at Purdue's West Lafayette Campus. Admission to the Doctor of Pharmacy program requires a two-year sequence of pre-requisites (PDF) which may be taken at Purdue North Central. Completion of these pre-requisites does not guarantee admission to the School of Pharmacy.
