Ohio Wesleyan is one of a few small colleges with two closely integrated life science departments: Botany & Microbiology and Zoology. This structure allows our program to provide students with the personal attention of a small college - and a large array of specialty courses in sub-disciplines across the biological sciences. That combination is rare.

About the Majors

Ohio Wesleyan's zoology program gives you two major options, so you can create a program that fits your interests and career goals.

  • The General Zoology major is designed for students who are interested in the study of human beings and other animals, but perhaps do not want to pursue a professional career in medicine or zoology. Often, general zoology majors choose to double major in another discipline, further expanding their career options.
  • The Pre-Professional Zoology major is more suited for those preparing for medical school or graduate study in zoology. Completing this major will satisfy the minimum entrance requirements of almost all graduate programs in biology or zoology as well as meeting most of the prerequisites for medical, dental, and veterinary medicine schools.
