Biology Program


The Biology Department curriculum is designed to enable students to understand scientific inquiry and to introduce them to the major areas of biological science. Objectives of the department are:

  • to increase knowledge and appreciation of biological systems from the cell to the ecosystem,
  • to create awareness and understanding of the role of the biological sciences in social and economic affairs,
  • to emphasize the importance of interdisciplinary science proficiency and experiences,
  • to develop critical and independent thinking skills, and
  • to provide the biological background necessary for entrance into a career or into graduate or professional school.
  • Qualified students may serve as departmental laboratory and teaching assistants, and may engage in faculty-directed research and independent study opportunities.
