Our Biology programs include two undergraduate degrees and a minor for students interested in discovering the fundamental knowledge of the living world. The study of biology has grown rapidly and become increasingly cross-disciplinary in recent years. As such, our faculty has proved versatile and committed to providing the best curriculum and experiential opportunities possible. In turn, each student will possess the knowledge and laboratory skills they need to excel in this exciting, ever-evolving field.

Students who graduate from our Biology programs will have completed a rigorous program of study while experiencing life in a bilingual environment. Program graduates will be competent in the use of modern biological techniques and in the analysis, interpretation, and presentation of data.

All of the academic experience creates students who are comfortable and excel in challenging environments. Students will be able to grow and adapt their skills in diverse professional environments.

Academically, students will have had the experience that allows them to do all of the following:

  • Describe living systems, including their nature, organization, and evolution
  • Apply methods of scientific inquiry in biology
  • Describe how human activities affect the living world and the physical environment
  • Describe the flow of energy and matter within and among organisms
  • Explain the historical context of biological discoveries
  • Evaluate information by discriminating between science and non-science
  • Evaluate and interpret quantitative data using the scientific method
  • Practice safety and proper techniques in the laboratory
  • Write accurately and clearly about biology topics
  • Explain why science is an integral activity for addressing social and environmental problems
