The Biological Sciences Department is one of the largest and most diverse on campus. We offer a wide array of classes, from Histotechnology, Public Health, Cell and Molecular Biology, and Microbiology, to subjects such as Humans and the Environment, Anthropology, and Ecology and Field Biology.
With 26 full-time faculty, 4 lab technicians, and over 40 adjunct faculty, our resources include modern lecture classrooms and teaching laboratories in the new Science Complex, as well as special facilities such as the Wildlife Sanctuary, B.J. Meek collection, cadaver lab, biology department museum, greenhouse, and specimen pond. Besides preparing students to transfer to four-year institutions, we have a successful vocational program in Histotechnology, whose graduates have an extremely high pass rate on their national certification exam and an equally impressive record in finding employment.
Our full listing of courses includes those in Anatomy and Physiology, Anthropology (including Archaeology), Biology (including Human Health and Human Sexuality), Botany, Histotechnology, Public Health, and Microbiology. Our students also have a wide range of interests, from students in pre-nursing and pre-allied health programs, non-science majors fulfilling their GE requirements, and science majors taking courses such as Biology 2, 4, 8, and 34.
