Biology is the study of life at all levels of organization, from molecular and cell to population and community. Students who complete a single major in Biology will have a broad introduction to these topics, along with the opportunity to specialize in aspects of biology that interest them in particular. Many courses provide an opportunity for independent research projects. Students may choose to do joint-major degrees with other departments or programs, including Environmental & Resource Science/Studies, Chemistry, Geography, Anthropology, and Psychology, among others.
The Biology Department offers two Specializations: one in Conservation Biology, the other in Health Sciences. We also have three placement opportunities
