A major in BIOLOGY provides students with a comprehensive understanding of living things. Students examine plants, animals, and microbes on a microscopic and macroscopic level; students will also discuss the relationship of living things to each other and their environment. Biology students receive hands-on training using sampling and identification techniques in the lab and in the field.
