About Biological Sciences
The department offers numerous and diverse courses in biology, including our foreign studies program. These courses may be combined in different ways to complete the requirements of the major. We stress the development of critical thinking and problem solving skills both in the classroom and as students conduct original research in faculty laboratories.
The biology department is located in the new Class of 1978 Life Sciences Center. Be sure to visit the greenhouses to see a unique teaching collection that includes the Brout Orchid Collection. The greenhouse is open to the public Monday through Friday, 9AM until 4PM (except during college holidays).
