About the Department

The department is home to over 530 undergraduate biology majors, 20 graduate students, 15 full time faculty and 3 adjunct faculty. Undergraduate students in our department earn a B.S. Degree in Biology. We also offer programs of study which prepare students to continue towards a career in the health professions but do not lead to a degree from Coastal. Our department participates in the Masters of Science in Coastal Marine and Wetland Studies, and offers courses for graduate students in Education.

Students in our department have access to professors with a broad range of expertise, from the molecular scale to the ecosystem. Faculty in the biology department take pride in providing excellent opportunities for learning inside the classroom and out. Our faculty have varied research interests, and we provide opportunities for undergraduates to participate in that research in the field and the laboratory.

We encourage you to browse the pages on this website to get to know more about our department.
