The study of biology encompasses all of the life sciences and endeavors to enhance your understanding and appreciation of living things. Students with training in the biological sciences will be among those who will contribute much toward solving critical problems facing the world today, such as food shortage, disease, and environmental use. You may design your program of study with the help of an adviser to best meet your particular interests and needs. The Department also has an affiliation agreement with the State Laboratory of Hygiene, UW-Madison, which enables students to complete clinical education in cytotechnology as an emphasis in the Biology major (contact department for details).
 
 

PIGEON LAKE FIELD STATION. The University of Wisconsin System sponsors summer programs at the Pigeon Lake Field Station near Drummond in Bayfield county of northwestern Wisconsin. Station offerings include undergraduate and graduate courses in field biology and in mapping and outdoor education. Sessions may vary from two to six weeks in length with a variety of biology courses offered on a rotating basis. Credit earned at the Station is accepted as residence credit at this University. The Field Station is located in a natural outdoor laboratory among the lakes, streams and forests of relatively unspoiled portions of northern Wisconsin. Students are housed in rustic cabins and get their meals in the Station dining hall. PLFS facilities also include three classroom buildings and a recreation hall on land including 1400 feet of shoreline on Pigeon Lake. With access to Lake Superior and the Apostle Islands, the national forest, and adjacent wildlife areas--the Station is ideally located for field studies as well as for recreation.
 
 

The several programs offered each summer are publicized by special announcements early in the year. For further details contact the Department of Biological Sciences.
 
 

MAJORS/EMPHASES

The student may elect one of seven emphases in the Biological Sciences major:
 
 

BIOLOGY - GENERAL (BA/BS)
 
 

The General Biology emphasis is designed for biology education majors and for select others who need an extremely broad range of experiences in the biological sciences.
