Do you dream of curing a disease or reducing pollution?  If you have a fascination with understanding how living things function, biology is the major for you!   Biology is an ever-changing field with constant advancement in terms of the understanding of evolution, conservation, development, and even genetics.  The emergence of new topics such as global warming or the threat of a new disease are oftentimes not only a conversation starter, but also new opportunity to research and learn more about our surroundings

Biology at STAC
The primary goals of the biology major are to prepare students for study in medicine, dentistry, and other health professions.  Students are exposed to the surrounding basis of life, organisms’ structure and function in both flora and fauna, and the evolution of all organisms that link the world’s ecosystems together.  Our students take a variety of courses such as Anatomy & Physiology, Genetics, Microbiology, and Ecology.  Every student has the opportunity to participate in a research project with one of our professors. Our faculty is committed to enhancing the historical and ethical perspective in the biological world.
