Our biology curriculum is among the nation’s most innovative; from your very first class, you learn how to think like a biologist, investigating and interpreting life processes. Biology intersects with many interdisciplinary studies and students are encouraged to participate in off-campus study and independent research, which may include the Conard Environmental Research Area and can prepare you for advanced study or a career in medicine, research, education, environmental science, health, conservation, or other fields.
