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 curriculum promotes a broad, integrated, and interdisciplinary understanding
of biological systems, utilizing a curriculum (link to the majors/minors page) that incorporates hands on learning experiences
and inquiry based courses.
IWU biology students have the opportunity to conduct research with biology faculty, pursue internshipsand externships for course credit, and all of our majors have the opportunity to study abroad.
Many of our majors are also Division III student athletes. Meet some of our student athletes (link to a page with student athletes).
Many of our graduates pursue graduate or health related professional school after graduation. Biology faculty and our career advisor (link to webpage) work together to ensure that our students are competitively prepared
Our graduates (link to graduates page) are well prepared for their futures, pursuing a variety
of graduate studies and exciting careers.
