The Mission of the Bachelor of Science program in Biology is to present the fundamental scientific facts and concepts needed for an understanding of the living world and to help students develop the skills they need to apply this knowledge to contemporary global issues.

In keeping with the evolution of the field of biology, the Department of Biology has adopted a more integrated, interdisciplinary approach to its curriculum.  We take great pride in getting our students excited about the field by fostering their collaboration with students and faculty in other science majors, providing them with a strong foundation in many specialties, and helping them pursue their own individual interests.
