Department of Biological Sciences

Department Overview

The Department of Biological Sciences seeks to stimulate an interest in scientific inquiry and the diversity of living organisms. We seeks to equip students with skills necessary for future employment in various scientifically-related fields or for further study at graduate and/or professional schools. Biology is the natural science concerned with the study of living organisms, including their structure, function, growth, origin, evolution, distribution, and taxonomy.

We provide a broad education in the fundamentals of biology via the classroom setting and through hands-on learning in laboratories. We also allow for specialized training by providing opportunities for students to participate in basic and applied research in ecology, genetics, microbiology, plant physiology, aquatic biology, cell and molecular biology, and more. Our curriculum prepares students for graduate school and professional programs such as medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, pharmacy, and related fields.  To enhance professional development and employment potential, faculty members encourage students to participate in undergraduate research opportunities to gain practical experience.
