See life from all angles.

Biologists study many aspects of how life operates; our courses reflect this diversity, ranging from molecular to marine biology.

We emphasize "doing" science rather than listening to it or reading about it. You will join faculty mentors as collaborators, either in formal laboratory or field classes, or in mentored research outside of the classroom.
