About Our Department

The Biology curriculum is designed to expose students to a wide range of disciplines within field, from molecular and cell biology to ecology and evolutionary biology

Core and auxiliary courses required of all biology majors provide a solid foundation in life sciences. Elective courses offer students the opportunity to concentrate on particular areas of biological interest. The department offers a B.S. in Biology and B.A.'s in Elementary, Secondary and Special Education.

Biology majors survey the origins, maintenance, and conservation of biological diversity, as well as the molecular, genetic, and cellular basis of life. Students have the opportunity to learn about a wide range of topics, which include the complex interactions that exist among organisms and their environments, as well as the biological processes that underlie molecular and organismic evolution, cellular function, and embryonic development.
