Biology Courses & Concentrations


Honors in Biology

MISSION: The mission of the Department of Biology is to graduate men and women with a foundational perspective of the diverse fields of biology and an awareness of their interrelations. A wide range of biology courses covering topics from molecular biology to  ecosystem dynamics, together with required support courses in mathematics, chemistry and physics provide our students with the resources to be successful in the postundergraduate world of work and continued academic pursuit. Student research experiences, together with off-campus internship, cooperative education and summer work opportunities in biology are encouraged to clarify vocational direction. Throughout the biology program a serious effort is made to engage students in careful thought about the relationship of biology to the Christian faith and issues of global concern.
