Biology Curriculum
Biology is at the forefront of scientific discovery and innovation. A thorough understanding of biological principles and methods enables students to pursue careers in diverse fields including health care, law, research, education, forensic science, industry and publishing. The Biology Department ensures that majors acquire a strong background in the discipline by offering a broad curriculum that combines required and elective courses, undergraduate research, and independent study.

The mission of the Department of Biology is to give our students an appreciation of the methods, potentials, achievements, and limitations of the biological sciences, and to instill in them the intellectual skills and ethical background to use this information effectively.
