Graduates of the department either have completed or are nearing completion in all of the various professional school programs. Others are in graduate school. Several graduates teach high school biology. Others are employed by Boise Cascade, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Forest Service, LSU Ag Center, Natural Resource Conservation Service, a public health laboratory, oil companies, and local businesses.
The department is housed in the Science Building. A major renovation of this building was completed in 2007 and resulted in a pleasing environment conducive to teaching and learning.
There are nine full-time faculty in the department who teach all of the majors’ biology courses as well as general education biology courses required for students in other majors across campus.
In addition to the B.S. in Biology, students may pursue the Bachelor of General Studies with a Biology Concentration, the Associate of Science, or a Minor in Biology.
