Zoology and Physiology

College of Arts and Sciences

Student Advising Booklet -­ Fall 2015

The Department of Zoology & Physiology provides a supportive environment for study in diverse fields ranging from cell biology to ecosystem function. Whether your interests are in human health care, animal biology, or wildlife management,  we have a major tailored to meet your needs. At any one time, our 450 undergraduates and 70  graduates are studying aspects of genetics, cell function, animal physiology, neuroscience, organismal biology (mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles, fish, invertebrates), toxicology, terrestrial and aquatic ecology, wildlife and fisheries management and pre-­‐professional human health care (dentistry, optometry, medicine). The degrees we  offer allow the curious to explore numerous career options, while providing a strong basic  science background for those wishing to pursue further education in graduate or professional schools. We strongly advise students to take rigorous and challenging high school courses in chemistry, mathematics, biology and physics to make sure that they are best prepared to “hit the ground running”. The first year of all degrees is similar, providing a grounding in the basic sciences. [download the complete booklet].
