Biological Sciences
Research on the Cutting Edge

If you are interested in a career in biology or life sciences, then Biological Sciences: Research on the Cutting Edge is for you!

You will live in Abel Hall and take introductory courses in life sciences.

You will also visit biology labs and field research sites with faculty and participate in annual events like “Roadkill CSI” (pictured) where you can dissect and examine roadkill. As part of this activity, you will get your own dissection kit, which will be useful throughout your undergraduate coursework.
