Biology


Biologists study the living world and attempt to understand the nature of life itself in all of its complexity and majesty. The biology faculty realizes that in order to develop the knowledge and understanding that provide insight into life’s mysteries requires a liberal arts education with a broad exposure to science. True specialization is relegated to postgraduate education. It is this philosophy that has guided the structure of the biology major.
