The study of biology is central to understanding the world around us. The Department of Biology offers undergraduate and graduate programs in which research is central, culminating in cutting edge projects in advanced, often inter-disciplinary courses and faculty laboratories. The Department's liberal arts curriculum and "Learn through Inquiry" approach provide our students with the skills needed to embark on careers in biology, healthcare and related fields. We also offer research-based graduate programs: an accelerated masters degree for Clark students and a PhD program open to all.
