Overview

To accomplish this mission, students study biological systems at all structural levels of the biological hierarchy: molecules and cells; organisms; and populations, communities, and ecosystems. Students also complete course work in a second discipline and demonstrate an awareness of the ways in which the discipline integrates with biology.

All majors within the Department of Biological Sciences offered by Cedar Crest College have the following three outcomes:

  • Students can apply the foundation concepts and principles of the biological sciences, including cellular structure and function, genetics and molecular biology, evolution and organismal diversity, and ecology.

  • Students can apply concepts and principles of the biological sciences beyond those that comprise the foundation.
