Biology Department

The Biology Department is committed to introducing students to the excitement of science, promoting collaborative and interdisciplinary learning and preparing students for their chosen career goals. We believe that students' participation in scientific research, both in the field and in the laboratory, and including subsequent data analysis and presentation of the results at conferences, can be a valuable part of an undergraduate education.
