Description of Biology
Biology encompasses the study of all living organisms, including microbes, plants, and animals. The study of biology
includes various aspects of life, including basic organization (molecular, cellular, tissues, organs), how organisms function,
their roles in the natural environment, how hereditary information is transferred, and development of biotechnology.
Biology graduates are broadly trained and well prepared for admission into strong graduate programs in the biological
sciences and professional schools (medical, dental, and veterinary). They may also directly assume positions in
government, education, industry, or certain technical fields.
