Department of Biological and Health Sciences
The Department of Biological and Health Sciences (BHS) was formed by the merger of the Department of Biology (BIOL) and Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSDO) in the Fall of 2006. BHS now has approximately 620 undergrads and 75 graduate students, with offices and laboratories located in three different buildings on the A&M-Kingsville Campus.
Texas A&M University-Kingsville is located in the heart of South Texas. The mission of Biology is to provide excellence in teaching, research, and service. We are dedicated to the success of our students and the strong research base of our faculty allows us to provide individualized research experience for undergraduates in cellular, molecular, and animal biology, as well as biomedical science. Qualified undergraduates frequently help with our lab courses as Lab Assistants, thus gaining valuable learning and teaching experience.
Our commitment is always to our students, so we offer BA, BS, and BA teaching certification degrees in Biology and a BS in Biomedical Science. Our Pre-Health Professions office of advising prepares students for admission to professional school (Medicine, Dentistry, PA, PT, Optometry, Nursing, etc.).
We also offer a graduate MS in Biology. Most faculty have grad students supported either by teaching or research assistanships.
