The undergraduate biology curriculum is designed to provide students with up-to-date training in the biological sciences, including fields of concentration in ecology and evolution, as well as molecular and cellular biology. Undergraduates may pursue a B.S. in Biology or a biology undergraduate minor. All biology majors complete a core of required biology and related courses and select a group of elective courses to comprise a field of specialization. The department offers two areas of emphasis within the major: (1) Cell and Molecular Biology and (2) Ecology and Evolutionary Biology.
