Biology Department

Why Biology?

We offer a major that provides students with a solid foundation in the fundamental areas of modern biology, while also providing the flexibility to pursue areas of personal interest. In addition to course work, students can take advantage of independent study and internship opportunities.

Our students benefit from the proximity of natural “classrooms,” extensive plant and animal collections, and a low student to faculty ratio. Learn more about the Biology Department.
