The Division of Zoology has purposely maintained a broadly integrative approach that is apparent in our research and educational activities. From subcellular phenomena to organisms and populations, we encourage a deep understanding of animal life. The division offers exciting opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to pursue their goals in diverse areas of research.
The Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Zoology is designed to give students a broad exposure to the basic principles of the development of animals, their systematics, their structure and function as well as their relationship to the environment. This program provides a solid foundation in the biological and physical sciences in preparation for careers in biology and for graduate study.
