The Department of Zoology and Physiology is composed of a diverse and collaborative group of Faculty and Researchers, working together to provide each of their students with the very best learning and research environment. We serve students interested in the following programs:

A Physiology Degree is important for students who are pursuing becoming medical practitioners and veterinarians, as it covers how animals breathe, feed, and interact with their environment. As with all our degree programs, students must meet University and College of Arts and Sciences requirements by taking additional courses outside the department.
