UE's Department of Biology offers multiple bachelors degree programs to prepare students for success in whatever they pursue after graduation.
Beyond the Classroom
At UE, the classroom is only the beginning. Through numerous research, field study, and study abroad opportunities, our students put their knowledge to work outside the classroom.
Whether at the top of their med school classes or launching successful careers, UE Biology alumni are doing exceptional work around the world.
The Department of Biology at the University of Evansville gives students the tools they need to succeed in graduate school and private sector jobs.
Over the last 5 years 94% of our graduates have either gone on to graduate/professional schools or are employed in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) related fields. We provide purposeful learning experiences through research – conducted individually through UExplore, Evansville's undergraduate research program, or one-on-one with professors. Learning is done in a hands-on environment either in faculty research labs, large greenhouse and animal facilities, or through fieldwork in the U.S. or abroad.
Biology students sweep conference awards!
Congratulations to our Biology majors that swept the first place awards in both the oral presentation and poster presentation sections at MESCON - the undergraduate Math, Science and Engineering Conference 2013. Ashley Rich earned first place in the oral presentation category. Coauthors Taylor Schoenheit and Taylor Timbrook tied for first with Emmy Ogawa in the Biology poster category. Great job all!
Biology Seniors Score in 99th percentile:
Once again the seniors in Biology tested in the highest category on the nationally administered Major Field Test in Biology. The test assesses mastery of concepts, principles and knowledge of graduating Biology students from approximately 400 institutions nationwide. It is important to note that our students receive no coaching or exam preparation materials prior to the exam, so it is to their credit that they perform at such a high level. Congratulations seniors!
Bio major research abstract chosen as official template
Senior biology/pre-med and psychology student, Shemikah A. Colleton's abstract tilted "Development and optimization of quantitative image analysis for hepatocyte BrdU labeling indices using NIS-Elements software" has been chosen by the Society of Toxicological Pathologists as the official template for all abstract submissions for the 2013 annual convention in Portland, Oregon. Congratulations Shemikah!
