We believe that students learn best by doing. At Hope, we provide new and interesting ways for you to do biology, not just learn about it.  

The biology department will introduce you to the broad scope of knowledge about living things and cultivate the craft of scientific inquiry.

You’ll leave our department:

  • Prepared for a job or graduate study in any of biology’s subdisciplines or the health professions
  • Equipped to create and communicate your knowledge of the living world
  • Able to adapt to ever-changing fields within biology — and the job market

Our department aims to be widely recognized as a premier undergraduate biology program by students and scientists alike, and our faculty and staff produce new knowledge in our areas of study.
