Animal Biology

The Animal Biology track is for students planning to pursue graduate studies in traditional zoology disciplines such as animal anatomy, behavior, diversity, ecology, evolution, genetics, or physiology. Students studying Animal Biology at our university will receive research experience, field training, and develop scientific writing skills. We pride ourselves on providing the ultimate hands on learning and research experience to prepare students for what’s ahead.
