The Department of Biological Sciences is a hub for innovative, interdisciplinary life science research and education. Students benefit from the breadth of our faculty’s experience, expertise and teaching skills while developing the courage and capacity to make their own discoveries.
Our philosophy of “lead with the lab” allows students at every level to develop critical thinking skills while providing training outside of the typical classroom setting.
The study of biological sciences provides ideal preparation for careers in research, education and the health industry. Many of our students choose to pursue higher degrees, then go on to find success in the fields of ecology, neuroscience, genetics, cell biology, molecular biology, pharmacy, dentistry, optometry, veterinary medicine and more.
