The biology curriculum is designed to provide a solid foundation in scientific study for students who seek to pursue further study at the baccalaureate level as biology majors, students whose focus is preparation for a career in the allied health disciplines, as well as students who wish to pursue a personal interest in the study of the natural world. Our courses cover topics ranging from cellular and molecular biology to organismal biology and ecology and evolution. Students learn how to engage with the scientific method through a variety of laboratory and field-based activities.
