Department of Biology Community home page

The Department of Biology seeks to promote profound understanding of living organisms and their environment, and a desire to use this understanding to improve our own long-term survival and welfare. The undergraduate program covers a wide range of basic and applied training for students’ future careers in governmental and industrial organizations or future graduate study. Biology major students learn the fundamentals of living organisms, be it plant, animals or microorganisms, from biomolecules, cells, organisms and populations with special emphasis on interaction between organisms in the ecosystem, as well as on the effects of environmental changes and conservation biology.
