Message from the Chair
The Department of Biology is one of the largest departments at UCCS, with over 700 majors. Biology majors survey the origins, maintenance, and conservation of biological diversity, as well as the molecular, genetic, and cellular bases of life. Students have the opportunity to learn about a wide range of topics, including the complex interactions that exist among organisms and their environments, as well as the biological processes that underlie molecular and organismic evolution, cellular function, embryonic development, exercise science, biomechanics, and human health. Our majors go on to many different graduate programs and careers including research technicians, medical school, PA school, veterinary school, wildlife conservation and more.
