The biology department employs eight full-time Ph.D.-level faculty members.  In addition, the department also has one part-time Ph.D.-level faculty member and one M.S.-level instructor on staff, both of whom contribute greatly to the overall success of the department, and are expert teachers.

The following subdisciplines of biology are represented in the training and teaching of our faculty members:
