Biologists are fully engaged in meeting the challenges of the future, helping to improve the quality of human life and to conserve our world’s biodiversity. Through a variety of lecture and laboratory courses, the Biology Department Faculty are committed to serving all students including biology major, allied health, and general education students in a collegial and supportive atmosphere. All biology courses aim to develop an understanding of biological principles but vary in emphasis from cell and molecular biology to the study of the human body to the biodiversity in our local ecosystems.
