About the Biology Programs


Courses in the department of biology are designed to provide a broad cultural education and prepare students for graduate studies, the teaching profession, medical and allied health professions and positions in resource management, environmental science and research.

Students planning to pursue graduate studies in biology (for research or professional degrees) are strongly encouraged to consult with faculty advisors in biology to determine the best curriculum for the chosen career path.

Student Spotlight: Caytee Wright

Biology + Management + Swimming

A double major in Biology and Management, a member of the swim team, and a focus on mentorship? All pieces of Caytee Wright's Drury experience. When she graduates, she wants to work in a dental office. 

“My dentist was always so friendly that I didn’t mind going,” she explains. “And I love kids and taking care of people, so I guess that is probably where that came from.”
