What You’ll Learn
Biology is a broad field that covers everything from the molecular level to entire environmental systems.
Find out how genes function within a cell, or how cells interact with each other in the human body. Whatever your interest, you can choose the classes that match up with your career goals.
Gain practical experience and a degree. We give you the option to participate in faculty-led research that will help you grow outside of class. We’ll also help to clarify your career interests through thoughtful faculty advisement and mentoring.
The Department of Biology also offers a chance to earn a combined bachelor’s and master’s degree. This way, you can earn both degrees within five years.Curriculum & Learning Outcomes
We recommend submitting first-year applications in October or early November. We decide your admission once you complete your application.

Contribute to the understanding of life processes as you prepare for a career. Faculty-led research is a great opportunity to apply your studies, and focus your professional goals.
We’re solving mysteries every day — in cancer cell growth, gene expression, brain chemistry, organ physiology, and more. You’ll help discover groundbreaking findings, and might even get published while doing it.
Many doctors, dentists, and veterinarians use biology as a foundation for entry into their health-related fields.
A biology major might be looking to work in a hospital, nursing home, or other medical-related fields. You might also be interested in pursuing a career in teaching or research through further study at the graduate level.
