• Program Overview


    Biologists study living organisms and their life processes. They are concerned with the origin, function, and preservation of life from the smallest cell to the largest ecosystem. Career opportunities are diverse and possible in areas such as medicine, agriculture, environmental science, industrial research, teaching, biotechnology, biomedical and/or biological research and governmental employment.

    To prepare students for a future in biology the Biology Department offers an extensive curriculum that will ensure a firm and broad background. Yet students can concentrate on courses of greatest benefit to them in their years of study. Students are individually counseled in their academic progress and advised in relation to their career goals by biology faculty.
