The Biology Program is an exciting blend of a traditional biology curriculum with an emphasis on ecology and environmental studies.

Hands-on experience is an integral part of the program. Many courses use our 90-acre field station as well as local national forests, national and state parks, and numerous wetlands as natural classrooms. Our laboratory experiences link modern molecular techniques with environmental and conservation issues. Internships with various state and federal agencies and professionals offer students on-the-job knowledge and experience.

The program helps students prepare for employment in the fields of bioresearch, natural resources, environmental consulting, and education. It also helps prepare students for graduate and professional programs, including medical school and veterinary school.
