Created in 1992 by the merger of Botany and Zoology, Biology has become one of the most popular majors in the University with a strong commitment to undergraduate and graduate education. We have taken a leadership position in establishing Learning Goals focusing on scientific skills and reasoning, and have embraced the College goal of being at the forefront of instructional innovation. We have a forward-looking Curriculum and a broad range of Courses spanning the major areas of Biology.
