The Biology Department strives to challenge the intellectual curiosity of students by emphasizing the complexity and interrelatedness of life systems as revealed through the unifying law of evolution. We provide a broad biological background for all students. Classroom and laboratory experiences are complemented by off-campus opportunities designed to prepare students for professional and graduate programs.

The Biology Department has a particularly strong curriculum for students interested in health-related fields. Many of our graduates have been accepted into regional and national medical and allied health schools. As well as a traditional pre-medical, pre-dental, and pre-veterinary curriculum, the department is involved in an interdisciplinary environmental science program with several other science departments, so students interested in ecology and organismal biology will find opportunities for study in those fields. A neuroscience program is also administered by the department. Because Centenary allows students to design their own interdisciplinary major in consultation with faculty members, anyone interested in life sciences will find many educational opportunities at the College.
