Like the living things at its essence, the field of biology is dynamic, constantly growing, rapidly changing, and replete with new discoveries and advances. Providing a solid foundation in modern biology equips our majors to take part in these discoveries.
Our alumni enjoy a variety of exciting careers, including marine biology, microbiology, molecular genetics, physiology, ecology, secondary education, and many specialties of medicine. Many of our graduates pursue graduate or health related professional school after graduation. Our students have a 75% admittance rate to medical school and dental school. The Biology faculty and the Biology Career Advisor work together to ensure that our students are competitively prepared for their professional aspirations.
IWU biology students have the opportunity to conduct research with biology faculty, pursue internships and externships for course credit, and all of our majors have the opportunity to study abroad.
