Individual Interests, Shared Opportunities
The faculty of the Department of Biology and Earth Science seek to educate students in critical thinking and problem solving; expand students' views of the world around them; prepare students for graduate school and careers in the sciences; and give students professional, hands-on experience both inside and outside the classroom.
