Each student who majors in Biology has a faculty advisor who will share curricular advice, biological expertise, departmental experience, and University guidance throughout the student's tenure in our department. Advisors meet with their advisees regularly throughout the year to discuss both immediate and future academic and career plans.
Because our department has four degree options and many courses, we offer course and curricular resources to help navigate your options.
