Called to Discover

Biological science students acquire a broad knowledge of the general principles of biological science to include the interrelationships of living organisms within the biosphere and the ways human populations impact these relationships. In the laboratories students develop skills in the use of the techniques and instrumentation applied in modern biological science. These experiences provide optimum preparation for graduate study or careers as a professional biologist or a biology education.
