Biology Department

The study of life takes us to some exciting places - from the trees of our own campus to Honduran barrier reefs. By nurturing an appreciation of the complexity and grandeur of nature, you will gain an understanding of evolution as the unifying theme of biology, the ethical dimensions of biological knowledge, and a lifelong participation in science. 

The goals of the biology degree program are to teach the knowledge and advanced investigative skills that will enable you to pursue advanced work in the biological sciences.
