Department of Biology
- Conservation and Biodiversity
Research, explore and experience the study of life from the molecule to the landscape.
The Department of Biology serves undergraduate and graduate students by laying the foundation for tomorrow's professionals. We have extensive resources to support teaching and research interests in cell biology, ecology and more. Our facilities continue to be upgraded by major external awards and we maintain several research collaborations with the Sanford School of Medicine.
The M.S. degree is intended for students choosing to gain experience in scientific research with professional goals in biology, such as graduate education; working for a federal or state agency or non-governmental organization; securing employment in industry; or teaching in secondary and higher education. Students can choose to specialize in conservation and biodiversity. Research areas include aquatic and terrestrial ecology, conservation biology, sustainability, ecotoxicology, plant and animal physiology, molecular biology, neuroscience, cell biology, developmental biology, genetics and evolution.
