What will I learn?

The mission of Biology is to provide excellence in teaching, research, and service. We are dedicated to the success of our students and the strong research base of our faculty allows us to provide individualized research experience for undergraduates in cellular, molecular, and animal biology, as well as biomedical science. Qualified undergraduates frequently help with our lab courses as Lab Assistants, thus gaining valuable learning and teaching experience. Our commitment is always to our students, so we offer BA, BS, and BA teaching certification degrees in Biology and a BS in Biomedical Science. Our Pre-Health Professions office of advising prepares students for admission to professional school (Medicine, Dentistry, PA, PT, Optometry, Nursing, etc.). We also offer a graduate MS in Biology. Most faculties have grad students supported either by teaching or research assistantships.
