The Department of Biology
Technological breakthroughs in areas such as biochemistry, botany, ecology, genetics, microbiology, molecular biology, and physiology are being used to solve problems in agriculture, environmental toxicology, forestry, medicine, public health, and pharmaceutical industry. The Department of Biology focuses on areas of modern biology and biotechnology offering the B.S. degree in four specializations: General Biology, Microbiology, Molecular Biology, and Pre-Professional. The Department of Biology also offers the traditional M.S. degree program with three areas of specialization.The Department is dedicated to engaging students in research projects with faculty and graduate students through Directed Independent Studies; in addition, some students may have the opportunity to work on projects with UWF's Center for Diagnostics and Bioremediation. UWF is also one of only a few institutions in the U.S. that offers a degree in Marine Biology at the undergraduate level. Visit http://uwf.edu/biology/ to learn more.
