The Department of Biology curriculum familiarizes students with basic concepts inherent to biological science and allows them to master new, cutting edge areas of biological research. Its degree programs prepare students to enter exciting and challenging careers in the many diverse and rapidly expanding areas of biological employment, including environmental biology, conservation, microbiology, the health sciences, science teaching, pharmacology, biotechnology, molecular biology, neurobiology, and forensics as well as in basic biological research. Superior teaching and faculty involvement with students is a high priority in the department. Many of its faculty have received university-wide awards for teaching excellence. Biology faculty have internationally recognized research programs in which students are actively encouraged to participate through credit for supervised research. Thus, students can prepare for careers in specific areas of biology by being actively engaged in research related to that career area under faculty supervision.
