Biology explores the structure, function and evolution of diverse living systems. It addresses some of the most important issues of our time—genetic engineering, stem cell research, obesity, cancer and effects of global warming. Majoring in Biology prepares students to pursue a career in research, teaching or the allied health sciences. It is also relevant to careers as diverse as environmental policy, law, public health, creative writing and textbook development.
