University of Massachusetts Boston offers a vibrant Biology curriculum and extensive opportunities for mentoring and hands-on research experiences as a means of developing a deeper understanding of biology at the levels of molecules, cells, organisms, and the ecosystem.
We stress the development of critical thinking and problem solving skills both in the classroom and by undergraduate students conducting original research in faculty laboratories. Graduate students can conduct interdisciplinary research alongside several faculty members in the areas of environmental biology and molecular and cell biology.
