Nicole Mulder and Dr. Brittingham at Graduation 2012

From extracting DNA to restoring prairies, courses in biology and environmental science acquaint students with the nature of the living world. These courses are designed to foster independent and creative thinking and offer a firm foundation in ecology, molecular, organismic and structural biology.

“The faculty in this department are excited about what they teach – there is so much energy! We work to prepare our students for success no matter what they decide to do. We embrace the world as our classroom and offer many opportunities for students to be researchers in their undergraduate program.”

Dr. Jackie Brittingham, Professor of Biology
