The Program in Biology encompasses a wide variety of disciplines. With about 80 full-time faculty in the departments of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Department (EEB) and Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology (MCDB), the Program offers a wide range of majors and minors.
The study of biology opens the door to diverse career opportunities. Many life science majors go on to attend professional schools in the health sciences (medical, nursing, and dental school) or graduate study that leads to careers in academia, industry, or government. Others pursue careers in conservation biology, law, journalism, teaching, and public health, among other options.
The Program in Biology office in 1140 USB houses biology-specific student services for our undergraduates and includes a drop-in space for students to study or check in with Peer Advisors. Many general questions can be answered by on-duty staff, but more complicated or in-depth discussions should be scheduled online.
