MUIC > Programs > Undergraduate Programs > Science > Major in Biological Science

Biology is the science of life. The vast scope of its subject matter makes biology an extremely diverse field of study. This diversity stems not only from the tremendous variety of life forms with which we share our planet but also from the multiple levels of organization available for biological investigation. Given an organism, a biologist might choose to investigate how it behaves, how it fits into its ecosystem, the mechanisms by which its genes shape its appearance, what its ancestors were like, how its cells divide, how it grows and develops or how it derives energy from nourishment. Biological inquiry encompasses perspectives from the planetary to the sub-microscopic.
