Offered as: Major, Minor, Graduate program
Our multi-track undergraduate biology degree serves as the basis for a variety of educational goals: Students with interests in the field of environmental science benefit from a "living laboratory" on our 351-acre campus, complete with streams, meadows, forests and wetlands in close proximity to the Columbia River, old growth forests, the Cascade Mountains, and the Washington and Oregon coastlines.
Students benefit from outstanding faculty, world-class research, state-of-the-art facilities and small class sizes. Many undergraduates enjoy the opportunity to participate in scientific research with our faculty.
Students interested in preparing for application to graduate or health professional schools (pre-med, pre-dental, pre-veterinary, etc.) will benefit from challenging courses and a supportive faculty.
Teacher certification in the area of biology is also offered on our campus, and students may complete required courses for endorsement in our program.
