The Biology Department at CSB/SJU provides students with a wide range of opportunities for gaining an understanding and appreciation of living systems. Its faculty's dedication to the teaching and mentoring of students means that small class sizes and hands-on learning are the norm in both introductory and advanced Biology classes. Students can take advantage of an array of modern laboratory equipment and unparalleled field resources, with forests, lakes and prairies all right on campus.
The SJU campus, where the Biology Department is located, is surrounded by 2700 acres of prairie, oak savanna, wetlands and forest, as well as several lakes. Our labs feature equipment for electron microscopy, DNA sequencing, electrophoresis and other techniques, for use in both class and independent research.
