The Department of Biology provides graduate students with an introduction to graduate-level biology across diverse fields of biology including ecology/evolution/behavior, development/neurobiology, genetics, global health, and molecular/cellular biology. Students will receive expert guidance in research, training in becoming effective communicators in science and a foundation in teaching pedagogy.

Some of our graduates will become academics, whereas others will find careers in government, private industry, public policy, or elsewhere (follow this link to see where recent graduates are now). Your ability to communicate both ideas and research results clearly and convincingly is key to your success no matter what career you enter.

We foster interactions between graduate students and faculty as well as within the community of graduate students themselves.
