Biology studies life from molecular, cellular, organismal, community, and global perspectives. The field examines the origins and evolution of organisms, as well as chemical and cellular processes, physiology, behavior, and relationships to the environment and to larger populations across ecosystems.

Relationship with Marine Biology

Similarities

Pairs well with Marine Biology for students interested in a focus on the evolution and physiology of marine organisms: how does this organism eat/move/reproduce, and why did it evolve this way?

  • Sample courses used by both programs: Invertebrate Zoology, Mechanisms of Animal Behavior

Differences

  • A good fit for students with an interest in both terrestrial and aquatic natural history
  • Can allow for greater focus on cellular and molecular biology
