The study of biology introduces students to the diversity of life, the chemical processes and adaptations shared by species and the interaction of species with their environment. By studying the different fields of biology, our students learn to appreciate the characteristics of life and the remarkable evolutionary history leading to the present forms. They understand advances in biological technology that are transforming our society. Knowledge of the interrelationships between populations and their habitats leads to respect, concern and a sense of responsibility for our environment.
Graduates are well prepared for graduate study in biology, professional schools in the health careers, a variety of jobs in government and industry, teaching at various educational levels, or, as with any liberal arts major, for life itself.
