Welcome to the Biology Department

The UCCS Department of Biology helps create critical thinkers and the next generation of scientists

Our mission is to provide excellent classroom teaching integrated with relevant research and practical experiences that will prepare students to be innovative and knowledgeable professionals in the biological sciences, as well as critical thinkers and engaged citizens.

We offer a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) and a Master of Sciences (M.Sc.) degree. In conjunction with the College of Education, students can specialize in K-12 biology education.

Our undergraduate curriculum was designed to provide students with a foundation in the biological sciences, as well as to foster an appreciation for the diversity of living organisms and the processes that sustain them.
