Students learn to utilize investigative techniques to resolve scientific problems and to pursue a variety of course work aimed at providing a broad and balanced understanding of the scientific method in general, and its application to biology specifically. Our curriculum combines traditional lectures with hands-on experience in the laboratory, field and professional environments.
