Spanning the broad field of natural sciences concerned with the study of life and living organisms, the Division of Biological Sciences consists of the departments of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Plant Biology, Cellular Biology, Microbiology, Genetics, Marine Science, as well as the non-Franklin department Entomology and the Odum School of Ecology.
In addition to having its own B.S. degree program in Biology (with the option of a concentration in neuroscience or marine biology), each department also has its own major and degree program. Due to the tight integration and relatedness of biological disciplines, the Division was created to conduct an undergraduate degree program with the participation of the individual departments and faculty. The Chairman of the Division of Biological Sciences as well as the Director of Undergraduate Degree Program is professor Kristen Miller.
