Welcome to the Department of Integrative Biology, with research-based programs that prepare our students to become critical problem solvers.  We recognize science not as a collection of facts, but as a process designed to help students make informed decisions about the nature of evidence.  Our faculty are funded in cutting-edge research in a broad range of biological disciplines and our community of students actively engage in research learning environments that encourage publication and job training.  

Our department offers BS, MS, and PhD degree programs, with opportunities for students to specialize in a range of fields.  In addition, we offer two undergraduate certificates in Biotechnology and in Environmental Stewardship of Indigenous Lands (ESIL).
