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.
The Drury Biology program encourages students to research within their desired field. Research abstracts may then be submitted for the annual Science Undergraduate Research Symposium (SURS). Each presentation will be eligible for up to three awards for best student research based on project quality and communication skills.
