The Department of Biology provides students a core foundation in the biological sciences, yet flexibility to craft a unique and individualized educational experience. The department boasts low student-to-instructor ratios that foster interactions between instructors and students, opportunities to conduct research with faculty, and a modern and well-equipped Science building. In addition to a flexible major in general biology (i.e., B.S. Biological Sciences), the department offers specialized degree options tailored to different career tracks. All biology degree options require students to take a similar foundational core of courses, after which different upper-level course requirements specialize each degree option.
You will receive your training in well equipped molecular biology, genetics, anatomy and physiology, microbiology, botany and environmental science laboratories in our state of the art Science Center, which opened in 2010.
