At its core, Biology involves the study of living organisms and their relationships to their environment.
At Southwestern, we seek to connect students with the intricacies, discoveries and trials of the natural world in a diverse, hands-on and engaged fashion.
Our professors focus on undergraduate learning through dynamic classroom teaching as well as independent and collaborative scholarship in their specialty area. Small class sizes (the largest lecture class has 32 students) allow for close attention, collaboration, and personalized learning experiences.
The Departments offers both a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Science degree (click here for basic degree plans) and supports interdisciplinary programs in Animal Behavior and Environmental Studies.
