Biological Sciences

From cellular structure and function to ecosystem dynamics

  • Research and Discovery -  Undergraduate and Graduate students work side-by-side with a faculty who are committed to both teaching and scholarship.
  • Seven undergraduate majors and one specialty concentration - Biological Sciences (BS or BA), Molecular Biology (BS or BA), Ecology & Biodiversity (BS or BA) and Integrated Sciences (BA). These options reflect the diverse applications and career opportunities in the life sciences.
  • Pre-Professional tracks - Undergraduates can follow sequences of required and recommended courses to prepare them for medical, dental, nursing, physicians assistant, physical therapy, pharmacy and veterinary schools.
  • M S and PhD programs - Graduate students conduct original research in Cell & Molecular Biology or Ecology & Evolution.
