With the increasing complexities of our modern world, the biological sciences will most certainly be at the forefront of scientific research, solving today’s problems while developing a thorough understanding of our past. Biologists look at our world through molecular biology, genetics, and microbiology as well as organismal biology and ecology.

The objectives of the biology program are (1) to present students with scientific methodology and fundamental principles of biology and (2) to provide students a broad foundation in preparation for professional careers in medicine, dentistry, physician assistant, optometry, pharmacy, biotechnology, industry, education, government, research, and veterinary medicine.
