Welcome to the School of Biological Sciences

We have embraced advances in biology that have blurred the lines between traditional areas of study. Our 44 full time faculty take a collaborative approach to their work by incorporating multiple disciplines and organizational levels.

Our 90 graduate students choose from one of three Research Specializations to explore life from molecules to ecosystems. We offer competitive research and teaching assistantships that prepare students for successful careers in academia or private industry.

Close to 700 students with a biological sciences major develop a broad understanding of life sciences to bring to their potential careers. We offer an anatomy course that utilizes cadavers, research opportunities in everything from behavioral ecology to virology, and hands-on field courses at Cedar Point Biological Station.
