Graduate Program in Biology

MS in Biology



From biomolecules to biomes, this is the place to study biology. Our department has the academic size and diversity to offer opportunities found at larger research institutions, yet we are able to maintain the personal and intimate learning community found at smaller liberal arts colleges.

In short, we offer the best of both worlds. As you tour our website, you will see that we are committed to excellence in both teaching and scholarship, with the student at the center of our activities. This commitment creates a learning environment where students excel both in and out of the classroom.
