Biological Sciences encompass the study of living organisms and life processes at all levels: ecosystems, populations, individual organisms, tissues, cells, subcellular structures, and molecules. The Department of Biological Sciences offers courses and programs of study that address all of these levels. The department offers three majors and a minor, as well as many opportunities for students to engage in faculty-led research projects for course credit. For more information about the majors and minors offered by the department, the honors track of each major, and research opportunities open to undergraduates, click here or please contact one of our Directors of Undergraduate Studies, listed below.
