Meet the Biological Sciences Featured Undergraduates! 


Undergraduate Education

Biologists deal will many of the major issues facing contemporary society: climate change, habitat loss, genetic engineering, cancer and other diseases. Majors in the Department of Biological Sciences gain a sound education that helps them to better understand and face these issues. Undergraduates in our majors ask questions on multiples levels from cells (cytologists, molecular biologists, geneticists), to organisms (anatomists, physiologists, entomologists, mammalogists, ornithologists), to populations and their relation to each other and to their environment (ethologists, ecologists). Many continue their education in graduate or professional schools. They become some of the physicians, researchers, educators, resource managers and policy makers who help shape the future.

Opportunities Within and Outside of the Department 

The Department of Biological sciences has many opportunities for undergraduates that go beyond the classroom experience: working directly with faculty members on cutting-edge research, preparing for a pre-health career though our many pre-professional clubs, and learning about teaching through the Learning Assistants Program. Merit-based scholarships are available through the department.  The department also maintains a listing of internship opportunities available outside of NDSU.
