Careers in Biology

Students in the College of Arts and Sciences must be advised by their major department prior to enrolling for each semester. Biology advising is accomplished by a group of faculty and full-time staff in the Department. E-mails are sent out to all Biology majors in October for spring advising and in March for fall/summer advising. In this email, each student is notified of his/her advisor's name, location, and method of scheduling an appointment. Advisors are assigned randomly, unless a student's specific interests are known. The head of undergraduate advising is Tim Bradford.

The purpose of advising is:

  • To answer questions, give advice, and check progress of Biology majors.
  • To promote a connection between the student and the Department, and to make his/her experience at the University of Oklahoma more meaningful.

With questions about advising, come visit the Biology Advising Office in Richards Hall 211A (see campus map).

The Premedical Professions Advising Office is a separate advising office (it is located in Richards Hall 209 next door to the Biology Advising Office) that provides additional information and services for students interested in health-related careers.
