Biology is a large and diverse field. Our curriculum explores levels of biological organization ranging from the molecular to entire ecosystems.
Many of our courses explore biology through an ecological and evolutionary lens. We emphasize science as a way of knowing and support our students in developing an understanding of life on Earth through observation and experimentation. We also understand the necessity, in today’s world, to consider the implications of climate change and loss of biodiversity throughout our curriculum.
