Degrees and Programs

The biology curriculum is based on the premise that a biologist, regardless of professional goals, must demonstrate a high degree of competence in several areas of biology. These areas include anatomy, developmental biology, ecology, evolution, genetics, microbiology, molecular biology, physiology and taxonomy. In order to achieve maximum benefits from these areas, a thorough knowledge of chemistry, physics, and mathematics is imperative.
