Biology, Organismal Biology and Ecology Concentration, B.S.

The Organismal Biology and Ecology major is intended for students interested in exploring the biology of organisms. Courses allow students to focus on the structure, function, and physiology of a broad array of organisms: from algae, fungi and plants to fishes, reptiles, amphibians, birds, and mammals. Faculty involved in this major integrate their research to additionally address issues in behavioral ecology, climate change, evolutionary ecology and history, population dynamics, community ecology, and wildlife diseases. The major provides a comprehensive background for students with career interests in being a field ecologist, a park ranger or naturalist, an environmental consultant, a natural resource manager, or for students to further their education to pursue a graduate degree.

A region's richness

A region's richness

Biology isn't all microscopes and petri dishes. The department has a number of professors whose research takes them 鈥 and many of their students 鈥 into the field to study the visible world and its creatures. Whether helping Dr. Vincent Cobb in his study of the thermal ecology of snakes in the region or assisting Dr. Brian Miller in his research on hellbenders, one of the largest (and some would say ugliest) salamanders in the world, Biology majors will find that there is plenty to see and learn about right here in middle 乐播传媒入口.

Research that matters

Research that matters

For more than a decade, Dr. Elliot Altman has explored the mysteries of peptide therapy research. His work has been part of a process that could revolutionize the treatment of types of arthritis and cancer in years (as opposed to decades). (His research also includes discovering ways to increase the efficiency of certain alternative fuels.) Motivated students in the Biology Department can be part of that process or other fascinating areas of work that makes a difference in people's lives.
