If you are fascinated by the natural world and have always wondered why we are made the way we are, then you should think about a degree in Biology. If you have a desire to study life and all of its physical properties, the Department of Biology wants you. You’ll learn and understand the physiology of plants and animals big and small, from the largest mammals to the smallest bacteria and viruses. In addition to offering a degree in Biology, we also offer two degrees in collaboration with the Chemistry Dept.: Biology-Chemistry and Environmental Science.
