Why Study Biology?
The word Biology elicits different images from different people. To some it suggests a research scientist in a white lab coat, while to others it connotes naturalists working to protect endangered species. No matter where you fit into the variety of interest areas which together make up the broad field we call Biology, the Methodist University faculty is ready to help you prepare for your career. Our faculty members are knowledgeable and approachable.
Among our alumni are surgeons, college professors, medical technologists, high school teachers, laboratory research scientists, veterinarians, physical therapists, public health workers, physician assistants and a variety of other kinds of biologists. Several have established their own businesses pursuing interests which they began to develop as students. We think our curriculum, with its combination of a sound basic foundation and the specialization offered by our six Biology concentrations serves our graduates well. So we are convinced that we offer a challenging curriculum in a friendly and nurturing environment.
