Undergraduate Programs

The Department of Biological Sciences provides world-class education and research opportunities for undergraduate students. We want to give our diverse student population opportunities to enter their post-baccalaureate lives as independent thinkers, problem solvers, and contributing members of society.

Undergraduates in the Department begin their work with comprehensive studies of the structure, function, behavior, and evolution of cells, organisms, populations and ecosystems. Then they have the opportunity to select upper division courses that reflect their intellectual interests and career goals. Those who earn bachelor’s degrees from the Department gain a strong background in the biological sciences and related fields.

The Department of Biological Sciences offers several bachelor’s degrees and minors for undergraduate students.
