Biology is the study of living organisms at all levels, ranging from investigations into molecular structure and processes to studies of complex interactions among different organisms. A biology degree provides students with general courses needed to understand the basic concepts and principles on which these disciplines are based, as well as advanced coursework in a wide variety of these disciplines. With a strong base in general biology principles, a concentration in Marine Biology provides students with an understanding of the marine environment, marine organisms, as well as opportunities for study provided in conjunction with the Gulf Coast Research Laboratory in Ocean Springs, Mississippi.
