It is ideal preparation for medical and pre-professional programs, as well as teacher education and graduate school.

Specialty laboratories include: anatomy, botany, ecology and field biology, physiology, invertebrate, molecular ecology, genetics, microbiology, neuroscience and development. Also available are labs dedicated to student-faculty research.

Around-the-clock access to bench space and equipment provide you with intense, impressive research experience at the undergraduate level.
