About Biological Sciences
Welcome to the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of New Orleans! At UNO, undergraduate education in the biological sciences prepares students for various careers. Our courses are designed for the development of a new generation of research biologists, educators, physicians, dentists, and veterinarians with B.S. degrees in Biological Sciences. We encourage our biology majors to participate in the ongoing research efforts of the faculty. While doing so, students earn credits for biology and general electives which will count towards graduation; please see courses numbered BIOS 2002, 2092, 3092, and 4091 in the general catalogue. Our 17 full-time faculty, instructors, and adjuncts have research and teaching expertise ranging from molecular genetics, to animal and plant physiology, biochemistry, conservation biology, population biology, community ecology, systematics, and much more.
