The Biology program of Hope College is offered by the Department of Biology. The Department offers all Hope College students an opportunity to participate in biology, either in courses listed here or in some of the GEMS and Environmental Science courses.


The Biology program of Hope College gives students the chance to learn biology in well-taught courses in a diverse curriculum. Courses emphasize active participation by the students in lecture, discussion and laboratory settings. A hallmark of the department's approach is the belief that students best learn biology by doing biology. Thus, almost all of our courses include investigative laboratories. In addition, we provide students with the opportunity to be biologists by participating in research projects with our faculty.

Biology majors desiring either a B.A. or B.S. must take the entry-level core courses in biology. The four General Biology courses provide a comprehensive overview of the basic principles of biology. They stress the central ideas in the biological sciences, such as ecology and evolution, adaptation, structure-function relationships and the global diversity and unity of life with an emphasis on the process of scientific discovery and investigation.
