With the increasing complexities of our modern world, the biological sciences will most certainly be at the forefront of scientific research, solving today’s problems while developing a thorough understanding of our past. Biologists look at our world through molecular biology, genetics, and microbiology as well as organismal biology and ecology.

The objectives of the biology program are:

  1. to present students with scientific methodology and fundamental principles of biology; and
  2. to provide students a broad foundation in preparation for professional careers in medicine, dentistry, physician assistant, optometry, pharmacy, biotechnology, industry, education, government, research, and veterinary medicine.
