Biology is the study of life, emphasizing the interrelationship of structures, organisms, and processes ranging from molecular to global. Biology majors study these interrelationships through a wide array of fascinating courses and research with faculty in the department who specialize in fields of genetics, molecular biology, animal and plant physiology, microbiology, virology, neurobiology, bioinformatics, evolution and ecology.
Seattle University is ideally situated for all of these fields. Seattle is a center for biotechnology and biomedical research, providing students the opportunity to work in front-line research and clinical labs. Nearby mountain ranges, old growth forest, lakes and rivers, as well as the marine environments of Puget Sound and the open coast serve as living laboratories. The Biology major appeals to students seeking to develop their analytical skills and embrace their curiosity. Many select this training as the most appropriate preparation for acceptance to schools in medicine, dentistry, etc., while others enter graduate programs leading to research careers. Some create interesting and unique careers by combining their Biology major with other interests, like writing, photography or law.
