Undergraduate studies in Biology allows students the opportunity to develop a basic understanding of the organization and the processes of life, from the level of molecules and cells through the level of organs and organ systems to the level of populations, species, eco-systems and evolution. The programs offer the mathematical, chemical and physical background necessary to understand biology and to help train students in practical scientific skills associated with each of these areas of study. Students also have the opportunity to begin to specialize in a sub-discipline of biology.
