Life is a science...explore it at USM

Investigate the science of life – and get your start at the University of Saint Mary.

As a biology major at USM, you will master the scientific method by learning how to ask essential questions, analyze key data, evaluate evidence, and solve problems. You’ll increase your understanding of the natural world and learn how living things work, interact and evolve.

Expert professors and instructors will give you the skills to succeed not only in the classroom, but for lucrative careers as well. Small class sizes and one-on-one attention means students can explore areas they may not otherwise approach.
USM’s biology program emphasizes:

  • Hands-on laboratory experiences to improve lab and cooperative skills – taught by full time faculty, not graduate assistants

  • Research opportunities for juniors and seniors

  • Highly qualified faculty to guide you throughout each course; resume building, interview prep and more
