Welcome to the Program in Biology!

Our program encompasses a breadth of disciplines spanning all levels of organization and includes the study of a diversity of organisms.  Our program includes: over 80 full-time faculty, seven different majors (and three minors), and a wide spectrum of career opportunities for graduates!

Interested students are encouraged to make an advising appointment early in their careers to discuss their plans!  Or stop by to visit one of our peer advisors in the Undergraduate Science Building (1140 USB).


We strive to support the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts on the front lines of learning and research; to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, Biology needs you—because the world needs Victors.
