Biology is not merely a collection of facts, but a process of discovery, and students are encouraged to participate actively in this process. The goal of the biological sciences major is to promote scientific curiosity, critical thinking, and intellectual maturity. Each course provides a framework for examining the scientific process as a means to master current knowledge and to provide a basis to address problems of the future.
