The Department of Biological Sciences is committed to providing educational and research experiences of the highest quality for undergraduate and graduate students as a means of developing a deeper understanding of biology at the levels of molecules, cells, organisms and the environment. We stress the development of critical thinking and problem solving skills both in the classroom and as students conduct original research in faculty laboratories.
Students find diverse opportunities to pursue cutting-edge research in faculty laboratories and hands-on experimentation. Majors develop an in-depth understanding within an area of concentration, while non-majors explore research methods and approaches in the life sciences.
Our faculty are committed to providing students with a broad exposure to biological processes and systems and a deep understanding of biology at environmental, organismal, cellular, and molecular levels.
With their faculty advisors, students extract DNA from plant and animal cells, study genetics of diverse life forms and species, translate their findings to higher organisms, and potentially impact human diseases and find solutions to environmental problems.
