Solving the World's Most Complex Problems

Exciting. Relevant. Challenging. Contemporary.

Biology is one of the fastest growing areas of science. Biologists today use innovative ideas and revolutionary technologies to solve complex problems in our world.

The Millikin Biology Program exposes students to the broad scope and diversity of modern biology, which they can use to develop careers in the life sciences. Students can participate in research, internships and directed studies, and many gain valuable experience as biology department laboratory assistants. The biology department is housed in the Leighty Tabor Science Center, a state-of-the-art facility that opened in 2002. Our faculty offices are located there, as well as several new laboratories and a greenhouse.

Biology majors benefit from a variety of career options. Research and teaching in high school or college are popular opportunities. Students in the pre-professional program may go into medicine, dentistry, optometry or veterinary medicine. Programs also are available for students interested in pre-physical/occupational therapy or pre-medical technology, molecular/cell biology, and environmental biology.
