Alternatives to Suspended Programs

The Department of Biological Sciences has consolidated our undergraduate programs. These changes result in programs that have broad appeal, provide greater flexibility and reflect the breadth and strengths of our department. As a result some programs have been suspended, but key areas of study within those programs may still be addressed in one of our current programs listed in the columns below.

Reference your area of interest in the first column to find how each of our current programs are complementary.


Interested in Animal Biology?

Ecology, Evolution and Environmental Biology

Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology Integrative Physiology
How invertebrate and vertebrate animals interact with their environment, each other, and evolve. Molecular structure and processes of cellular life. Processes that occur within animals, including interactions within cells, between cells, tissues, and organs, and responses to external and internal factors.
Interested in Evolutionary Biology? Investigation of organismal diversity, evolutionary relationships, adaptations and genetic variations.
Interested in Microbiology? Exploring microorganisms: what they are and evolutionary history; their functions, role in ecosystems. Emphasis of bacterial function, structure, and biochemistry.
Interested in Plant Biology? How plants grow and develop, interact with the environment, each other and evolve. Molecular plant genetics, including physical, chemical, and molecular processes that occurs in and between cells. How plants grow, develop, and respond to external and internal factors.
