Department of Biological Sciences

When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world. John Muir

The mission of the biology department is to provide a well-rounded education for its majors that include understanding core biological principles at the molecular, cellular, organismal, population, and ecosystem levels. The department also seeks to cultivate the analytical skills and curiosity about the biological world that will enable students to be successful professionals, thoughtful citizens, and caretakers of the world.
