Students will gain an understanding of living organisms at the cellular and molecular level through the core courses in the major. The electives will expand their opportunities of acquiring knowledge of organisms at the organismal level and in relationship with their environment. The curriculum emphasizes hands-on learning and provides undergraduate research experience. Students learn through elective courses and research how to apply biological knowledge to solve current problems in fields such as Agriculture, Medicine, Environmental and Marine Sciences.
