Integrated Biology and Chemistry

The Integrated Biology and Chemistry Path of Study guides you from introductory to advanced work within the field. It helps you plan which programs you might take as you progress, while providing breadth, depth, and consistency throughout your time here at Evergreen.

Note: You can join or leave a Path of Study at any time and your credits will always count toward your Bachelor’s degree.

About Integrated Biology and Chemistry

In this Path, you and your faculty will collaborate in extensive hands-on lab and field work. The combination of our forest, shoreline, and exceptional lab facilities creates a unique learning environment. Throughout your time here, you’ll have unprecedented access to our research equipment, and use it to apply scientific principles and critical thought to real-world problems.

  • Examine life at the atomic, molecular, cellular, and organismal levels
  • Study chemical reactions critical to living systems
  • Analyze trace metals in terrestrial and coastal ecosystems
  • Solve problems using both biological and chemical perspectives
  • Share your passion for science

The Integrated Biology and Chemistry Path of Study gives you the experience and background you need for careers in medicine or other health professions, graduate school, teaching, or direct entry to careers in local government and the private sector.

Foundational programs

Start with the Integrated Natural Science (INS) program, which will prepare you to take the advanced, upper division programs Molecule to Organism, Environmental Analysis, and other specialized advanced programs. If you want to enter this Path but don’t feel confident in your math skills, we suggest enrolling in one of our preparatory programs to prepare you for the INS program.
