Biology is a dynamic, interesting and important field of study. Students and faculty in our department are interested in the study of life from molecular, cellular, organismal, community and global perspectives.

Graduate programs leading to either the M.S. or Ph.D. degree are offered in a wide variety of disciplines within the areas of biochemistry, developmental biology, genetics, molecular and cellular biology, neuroscience, ecology, and evolution.
