As part of the biology major, all students carry out one semester of research under the supervision of a faculty member in the department. Undergraduate participation in original research gives students the chance to experience firsthand what the science of biology is really about.

Research efforts by majors in the department often result in publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Over the past five years, 40 undergraduates in the program coauthored scientific papers. Seventy students in the last three years have given research presentations at professional scientific meetings, including the highly competitive National Conference on Undergraduate Research.
