About Us

The mission of the Department of Biology is to produce scientifically literate graduates who display robust knowledge of biological principles from molecules to ecosystems. We train our undergraduate students to use their critical thinking skills and mastery of biological principles to perform inquiry into the biological world and effectively convey biological information. We are committed to experiential learning including laboratory, field, and research experiences. Students graduating from this program will be well prepared for a variety of professional careers or entry into graduate school programs.
