We are proud of the curriculum we offer students. We provide a broad range of courses which prepares our graduates not only for success in science-related jobs, but for graduate school and professional programs of study.

All four members of the Biology faculty hold a Ph.D., and each teaches courses in their areas of expertise.  These include courses in the health sciences, as well as field courses.

 The majority of our graduates continue their education at the graduate school or professional level, but many choose to begin their careers in science immediately following graduation. Some of our graduates choose to work in quality control or research and development laboratories. Some go on to work in conservation or park management. Still others begin fulfilling careers in teaching.

Our graduates who have pursued graduate or professional programs have chosen such fields as genetics, forensic science, and physiology, or health-related fields, such as medicine, dentistry, physical and occupational therapy, and physician assistants programs.

We encourage you to experience Briar Cliff for yourself.  Please call our Admissions Office at (800) 662-3303 or (712) 279-5200 to schedule a campus tour and an appointment with one of us.  We will be glad to answer any questions you may have regarding the exciting field of biology.

On behalf of the Biology Department,

Professor of Biology and Chair, Biology Dept.
