Department of Biology and Environmental Sciences

Biology and Environmental Sciences Department

Through teaching, research and service, the Department of Biology and Environmental Science seeks to advance understanding of the sciences at all levels, from molecules to ecosystems. Biology education at AUM strives to strengthen core disciplinary knowledge and to foster synergies that arise from the relationships students build with our creative and collaborative faculty.

"The Biology department helped me prepare for graduate school."

The College of Sciences offers students a scientific education to meet the needs of the 21st century, allowing them to compete for a variety of careers in an increasingly complex and evolving world.

Advising

Biology, Environmental Science, and GIS majors are advised by professional advisors in the office of Central Advising and by faculty in their junior and senior year.

Biology offers two undergrad degrees; Biology and Environmental Science. The Biology and Environmental Science degrees have several concentrations to help you prepare for graduate school or to focus your interests for a particular career.

Study Abroad

Study abroad short courses, summers or semesters are routinely offered through our membership in the Organization for Tropical Studies (OTS). From time to time, the Biology Department may sponsor other study abroad field experiences.

Giving to the College of Sciences

The AUM College of Sciences strives to ensure that students have every opportunity to successfully complete their educational goals. Part of that effort is our commitment to helping students to pay for costs associated with their education.

Undergraduate research is a way to get research experience before leaving college. As a student you will work closely with a faculty advisor on a shared research project. The research options are almost limitless and the experience is invaluable.
