Integrative Biology


The Department of Integrative Biology offers graduate and undergraduate programs, all with the flexibility to focus on your individual career goals. With a broad selection of courses to fulfill requirements, our faculty advisors serve a critical role. They can help you build a solid foundation for careers in health and medicine, teaching or research.

Bachelor of Science 

Bachelor of Science

The biology major leads to a BS degree and is designed to provide a firm foundation in the life sciences. As such, graduates are well prepared for graduate study in biology, professional schools in the health careers, a variety of biologically oriented jobs in government and industry, teaching at various educational levels, or, as with any liberal arts major, for life itself.


Graduate Programs​

The Department of Integrative Biology offers research-based MS and PhD programs that provide advanced training and the opportunity to conduct original research in an area of specialization of one of our nationally and internationally recognized faculty members. The programs prepares graduates for careers in research and teaching; for employment in business, industry and government; for existing career advancement; and for continuing post-baccalaureate work in other graduate, professional, or post-doctoral programs 

Biotechnology Certificate

Biotechnology, a broad term covering such disciplines as agriculture, pharmaceuticals, microbiology and medical device development, is a rapidly growing field in Colorado and nationally. Those wishing to pursue a career in biotechnology need to have a strong knowledge of biology and chemistry, which is why we offer a certificate program that allows students to acquire special skills in research-based biology and chemistry.

The need for the ESIL Certificate

The stewardship of indigenous lands depends, in part, on scientifically awar, culturally-sensitive individuals who can serve as environmental liasons between triban and non-tribal government, and private and non-profit organizations.  We have created a network of tribal and non-tribal agencies to provide ESIL students with the most current porfessionally relevant training to meet the employment needs in this critical area of environmental stewardship.
