Biological Sciences

Students earning a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Biology can choose from among the Ecology and Environmental Biology track, the Marine Biology track, the Cellular and Organismal Biology (includes Pre-med also) track, the DNA Analysis Methods track, and a General track. Each track provides opportunities for hands-on experience in the laboratory and in off-campus field settings beginning in the freshman year. Our students receive personalized attention from highly-qualified and dedicated professors committed to their success at LHU and after graduation.

Located in the new East Campus Science Center, the Biology Department participates in independent research projects with our students and works hard to make sure that there are ample experiential learning opportunities available. Recent student independent studies have included research in cytotaxonomy, microbiology, entomology, ornithology, aquatic ecology, molecular biology and wildlife management. Many of these projects have been so successful that the results have been presented at scientific meetings and published in scientific journals.
