Do you want to be on the cutting edge of biological sciences? Does a hands-on
learning approach appeal to you? Are you looking to be part of the future in the
fields of genetics, medicine, or environmental research? Perhaps you want to pursue a
career in biotechnology, neurobiology, or botany. Maybe you are interested in serving
others as a teacher or medical professional.

Research   Some find positions in industry or manufacturing. And
           the job market for life scientists is expanding. Employ-
           ment opportunities in a number of specialties exceed
           the supply.
              Ongoing research is crucial to higher education.
           Thus each faculty member in the Department of Biol-
           ogy maintains a vigorous research agenda and pub-
           lishes findings in scientific literature. This culture of
           ongoing research involves both graduate and under-
           graduate students who participate as important team
           members in the process of discovery and publication.
           Typically, 20-30 papers are published annually by biol-
           ogy faculty, most of which involve student coauthors.
           Andrews biology faculty publish on a wide range of
