Through teaching, research and service, the Department of Biology seeks to advance understanding of the life 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 department seeks to provide the needed facilities and equipment to allow faculty members to do creative and cutting-edge research; it also provides opportunities for students to work with faculty members on research projects. In all ways, we endeavor to develop the knowledge, skills, and talents of our students. Exceptional students are also able to present scientific results at both internal and external conferences as well as in the scientific literature as research study co-authors.
