Large institutions just can’t provide the individualized attention and opportunity you’ll find here. As a freshman, you’ll work in the lab with real professors – not graduate assistants or lab instructors. Throughout your four years, you’ll design and conduct your own experiments, work on independent projects, and assist professors with grant-funded research. Most biology students present their research at regional and national conferences. 

As a Biology major, you also have the option to choose a pre-professional track in physical therapy, occupational therapy, physician assistant, pre-optometry, pre-dentistry, pre-veterinary science, or pre-med. From the time you arrive on campus until you graduate, you’ll be guided by a faculty advisor. You’ll enjoy small class sizes and amazing friendships with your fellow biology majors. Our dedicated professors will get to know you. They will support you in your coursework, research, internships, co-ops, post-graduate or career preparations. They will become personally invested in your success – in college and beyond.

From field trips to the Metzger Nature Center to spending a semester studying abroad, from STEM outreach projects with local schoolchildren to heading up a student organization – the opportunities open to you are truly incredible!

Upon graduation, you’ll be ready to make important scientific contributions. You’ll be armed with the knowledge, hands-on experience and critical thinking skills needed for success – no matter where your path leads you.
