Majors in the Biological Sciences
Biology is the study of the living world around us. It explores the structure and function of living organisms including animals, plants, bacteria and viruses. Through one-on-one interaction with our faculty, our students gain in-depth experience in the process of science, learn laboratory techniques, as well as share in the excitement of scientific discovery.
The Biology program is delivered by the Biology department.
Physiology, the bedrock of biomedical education, addresses much more than human health and disease. Integrating from gene to cell to organism, students explore and master anatomy and cellular and integrative physiology, and learn the cutting-edge investigational techniques that characterize physiological and biomedical advancement in the modern world.
The Physiology program is delivered by the Biology department. A summary of the Physiology program can be downloaded here.
