Department of Biology

Where science meets life

The Department of Biology is a dynamic and friendly place, where faculty, staff, and students work together to understand the concepts of life. Our diversified undergraduate curricula (which spans the breadth of modern biology, from molecules to ecosystems) and flexible approach provides the fundamental knowledge necessary to be fluent in many areas of biology.

It is no wonder that biology is one of the most sought-after programs at FMU. With an enthusiastic commitment to excellence in teaching and research, our faculty are focused on one goal: to prepare the next generation of biologists for advanced degrees and careers in the life sciences.

It is an exciting time to join the Department of Biology at FMU, and the need for trained biologists has never been greater. Thank you for visiting our website. As you explore these pages, you will find information about our undergraduate degrees, research opportunities, and more.
