Biology (BA) Program Assessment

Mission

The Biology BA program provides in-depth knowledge of the science of life, from molecular biology to ecology. Students develop ability to critically analyze information, to make connections among different areas of biology and to communicate their ideas effectively to the scientific community. Students also acquire critical laboratory skills and learn how to design and perform experiments and to analyze experimental results to test a hypothesis. The Biology BA program is also designed to offer students a possibility to extensively explore their interests in liberal arts, such as fine arts, humanities or social sciences. Our department fosters a multi-cultural, experiential learning environment helping our students to develop into creative and critical individuals and provides excellent preparation for a variety of professional careers, including graduate programs in biological sciences, medical and dental schools, or teaching.
