Course info


This concentration within the biology major is an opportunity for students to explore, in greater detail, the behaviors, phylogeny, anatomy, physiology and environmental interactions of animals. Students are able to focus their upper level elective courses on animals and related topics.

Biology is the scientific study of life and life processes. Biologists study the organization of life from the structures of molecules to the balance of ecosystems. Biology majors learn to observe critically the details of all life; they analyze data and apply biological knowledge learned in the classroom to draw conclusions about their observations.

Biologists are able to make significant contributions to maintaining the health and well-being of the human population, as well as preserving and protecting the environment. They develop a knowledge base and scientific way of thinking that will enable them to make informed personal health and public policy decisions.

Visual learners will especially appreciate the complexity and behaviors of the animals they will study. The major requires a significant amount of hard work and study time, but can result in a very rewarding career.
