Department of Biology

The Department of Biology at Winthrop University features a challenging but rewarding curriculum taught by an experienced, enthusiastic faculty. Focusing on the student's ability to conduct research, the biology major allows students to tailor a program to their interest, whether they be zoological, molecular, environmental, teacher certification, or other interests. Small classes (averaging 20-24 students in labs) ensure that students have the opportunity to take advantage of interaction with their instructors.
