The Biology curriculum is enriched by interactions with the Missouri Botanical Garden, the Donal Danforth Plant Science Center, the St. Louis Zoo, Saint Louis University School of Medicine, and Cardinal Glennon Hospital. Through these resources, students have the opportunity to study biology beyond the limits of the classroom.
The Department of Biology also has a field station for research and teaching, providing unique opportunities for students to explore ecology and conservation biology through hands-on experimentation. The field stations offer students opportunities for summer course work or for undergraduate research throughout the year. Also, students may visit the stations for field trips in undergraduate courses.
Students are encouraged to round out their educations by participating in co-curricular activities. Groups such as Beta Beta Beta, the biology honorary society, and the Pre-Med Club are social and academic organizations that further students' interest in biology while exposing them to its relationship with other scientific disciplines.
All inquiries and questions regarding our undergraduate program can be sent to Dr. Laurie Russell.
