Department Chair: Dwight Dimaculangan, Ph.D.
The Department of Biology at Winthrop University features a challenging but rewarding curriculum taught by an experienced, enthusiastic faculty. The biology major allows students to tailor their programs beyond the major's core curriculum to meet their specific needs. Biology is frequently chosen by students with career interests related to medicine, health sciences, botany, zoology, molecular biology, environmental and conservation biology, teaching and secondary education in the sciences and other careers. Small classes (averaging 20-24 students in labs) ensure that students have the opportunity to take advantage of interaction with their instructors.
