The biology program at the University of Evansville equips students with the tools needed to succeed in the future, whether their paths include graduate school, professional school, or STEM-related careers. Students are exposed to extensive learning experiences in the classrooms, research labs, a greenhouse, our Native Plant Garden, and even outside of the country.
From their first semester in the program, students are provided with endless research opportunities either individually or one-on-one with professors. The work is very hands-on and allows students to work with cutting-edge technology and equipment.
Biology students enhance their rich academics through internships, as well as cooperative and research experiences. In addition to University-based scholarship support, merit-based endowed scholarships are available and designated for biology majors.
The University of Evansville biology department delivers results:
70%of seniors received support to conduct undergraduate research (2022)
90%of grads from the last five years are employed or studying in a STEM-related field
100%of seniors applying to professional or graduate school were accepted (2022)
60%of the class of 2022 participated in study abroad programs
The Department of Biology is committed to providing students with an educational, research-focused environment that will prepare them for the biology-related challenges of the 21st century.
The department is dedicated to helping students develop the following:
- A knowledge of basic concepts and principles that comprise the biological sciences through traditional instruction and inquiry-based learning.
- The ability to critically interpret biological concepts and principles and relate them to other subject areas that comprise the liberal arts.
- The ability to add to their understanding of biology through research and other creative endeavors.
- The ability to effectively communicate their understanding of the biological sciences to others both within and outside the discipline.
- An awareness that knowledge from the biological sciences is integrated with a number of global issues, including those from social, political, and economic perspectives.
