Welcome to the School of Biological Sciences
Our research and teaching cover all levels of biological organization – from molecules to ecosystems – with a focus on integrating across levels. Our faculty are well-supported by external grants for their research, and publish actively in the top biological journals. We have one of the largest undergraduate programs in the College of Arts and Sciences, and our student numbers continue to grow. Our faculty are deeply engaged in teaching, in implementing modern pedagogical methods, and in involving students (at all levels) in their research. We are presently leading a university-wide initiative to implement a new Life Sciences undergraduate curriculum. In other words, the School of Biological Sciences is an exciting place to be!
