Welcome to the Department of Biology
Our staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful, providing students with a positive collegiate experience. Opportunities abound in the Department of Biology with students participating in research, Study Abroad, National Student Exchange, internships and access to a variety of student organizations.
The Department has received generous funding of nearly one million dollars from the Roy J. Carver Charitable Trust to provide students with access to modern equipment in our teaching and research laboratories. We are committed to maintaining small class sizes in our advanced courses and teaching laboratories and providing access to the numerous courses offered in our curriculum.
Our students are successful in their goals to attend professional and graduate programs or starting a career immediately upon graduation. This is an exciting time to be a part of the Department of Biology at the University of Northern Iowa.
