Our outstanding faculty, state-of-the-art lab facilities, close proximity to field sites, and small class sizes provide our students hands-on experience across the full range of modern biology disciplines, from the sub-cellular level to the biosphere.

The Department of Biology emphasizes both student participation and the development of critical analytic skills necessary to understand the changing biosphere and emerging technologies.  Our curriculum contains core biology sequence course work, a wide range of elective choices, and the opportunity for independent research.  Students can direct their upper level course work according to their own interests in several areas including (but not limited to) molecular genetics, neurobiology, conservation biology, organismal biology, and developmental biology.  Biology majors are well prepared to engage in a wide variety of post-college careers including: professional and graduate programs, public policy, business, education, outreach, and academics.
