Biology is a rapidly changing science that incorporates molecular and cellular biology; behavioral and molecular ecology; developmental biology; organismal, ecological and evolutionary genetics; microbiology; aerobiology; molecular systematics; and neuroscience. Flexible degree requirements lead to careers in the biology and health fields or graduate school.
The Department of Biological Science offers B.S., B.A., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees along with an interdisciplinary option in biogeosciences.
Research opportunities allow undergraduate and graduate students to work directly with professors in laboratories as well as ecological field sites such as the Tall Grass Prairie Preserve, the Oklahoma Cross Timbers and the Ozark Mountains. Students are encouraged to participate in the local chapters of the Beta Beta Beta biology honor society and Alpha Epsilon Delta pre-med honor society and are often invited to present research at nationwide conferences.
The University of Tulsa is not accepting applications or matriculating new undergraduate students into the bachelor’s program in biogeosciences beyond the fall 2019 term. Students who have matriculated into the bachelor’s program may not declare biogeosciences as a major after the spring 2020 term. The information above is for reference purposes only.
