About the Department

placeholder

The Department of Biology has a primary mission of preparing students for a successful career in the field of Biology and related areas for advanced graduate study.

Our department is led by dynamic faculty that work closely with students to help them develop the critical skills necessary to succeed in their field of study.  

The preparation provided by our programs allows students to function effectively in fields in biology, research, medical practice, hospital, and much more!

Each program in the department supports our disciplines' long-standing interest in understanding biological concepts relevant to the individual and society and fosters an appreciation of scientific inquiry.

Our students obtain a broad education, covering a wide variety of biological disciplines. We focus on the student; classes are small, facilitating hands-on experience, interactions with faculty, and opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate research.
