Biology Department

The study of biology constitutes an exciting and important field of scientific investigation, since it provides a better understanding of ourselves and the living things around us.

Even the casual observer of biology who pauses long enough to take a course may derive a lifetime of pleasure and fulfillment from a hobby such as bird watching, shell collecting, or wildflower photography.


Most biology majors are on a pre-professional track (medical or dental), and the coursework is designed to prepare students for graduate entrance exams (MCAT, DAT, and GRE). A major in biology also prepares students for pursuing careers in research, laboratory assisting, teaching, and other specialties.
