Research opportunities with a Biology degree

Whether your interests lie in the bottom of a river or the bottom of a Petri dish, you’ll have opportunities to design and execute research projects that contribute to solving real world problems—not just rote lab assignments to learn procedures. Students work closely with faculty on their own research, and in support of faculty projects already underway.
