Overview

Biology fosters an understanding and respect for the patterns and processes of the living world.  Students develop technical and analytical skills that allow them to identify and evaluate the significance of biological problems across all levels of organization from the cell to the biosphere.  The curriculum integrates the societal implications and consequences of contributions made by the field with an understanding of the moral and ethical decisions related to the life sciences.  In this manner, students develop a personal philosophy of the living world that includes compassion and responsible action toward all life.
