Biology

Course Overview

As a Biology student, you’ll study life and the principles, from the molecular level of organization to the biosphere level, in preparation for medical school, graduate study, or a top-notch job.

  • Look for signs of life during faculty directed research into topics such as microbiology, genetics and DNA repair, toxicology, conservation genetics, virology, ecology, and evolution.
  • Study principles of cell structure and function, molecular genetics, physiology, vertebrate anatomy, microbiology, developmental biology, immunology, taxonomy, and evolution.
  • Learn and research in completely renovated, state-of-the-art laboratories.
