Our Approach To Biology
Biology at Union offers a diverse array of opportunities for an undergraduate. Compared to colleges of similar size, the diversity of our courses stands out: molecular biology, organismal biology, population biology, marine biology, ecology, evolutionary biology. The department has strength in both plant and animal sciences. This gives our students the opportunity to test their interests and aptitudes in many different areas of biology. We also offer the opportunity for interdisciplinary training with programs in Neuroscience, Biochemistry and Bioengineering. Although we offer some advanced courses, we feel that graduate school is the time for specialization. Undergraduate years should be dedicated to the discovery and definition of goals and to gaining a broad-base education in relevant areas.
