About Biology

Biology is the study of life from the level of biological molecules to ecosystems, including every level of investigation in between.  The Department of Biology at Miami University offers both A.B. and B.S. degrees in Biology, Botany and Zoology, so that any student interested in the biological sciences can find an appropriate degree program: Biology if they prefer a broader perspective, or Botany or Zoology if they prefer to specialize in plants or animals, respectively. Additionally, the Department offers graduate studies in Biology and in Botany and is one of the participating Departments in the interdepartmental graduate program in Cellular, Molecular, and Structural Biology (CMSB) and the graduate program in Ecology, Evolution, and Environmental Biology (EEEB).
