The Department of Biological Sciences offers degrees in biology and zoology. You'll learn from outstanding professors, gain hands-on research in the labs of the new Shineman Center and the living laboratory of the Rice Creek Biological Field Station, and become well-prepared for in-demand professional opportunities or graduate school pursuits.

Biology is the study of living things; zoology is the sub-discipline of biology that is specifically the study of animals.
