Biological and Environmental Sciences


Congratulations to Anne Zimmerman, one of our graduating biology majors in the Class of 2014.

Anne received a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship and will attend Washington University in pursuit of a Ph.D. Our department is very proud! A link to an article about Ms. Zimmerman's fellowship and research can be found here.


Our department offers degree programs in Biology (B.S. and M.S.) and Environmental Science (B.S.). The faculty represent a wide array of disciplines such as cellular/molecular biology, organismal biology, terrestrial and aquatic ecology, geology, hydrology and paleontology. This incredible breadth allows us to provide courses and research opportunities for almost every student. The Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences has the largest number of majors on campus (around 470 Biology majors and around 100 Environmental Science majors.)

Our undergraduates take advantage of a diverse number of extracurricular experiences such as the Georgia College study abroad program, summer internships and the National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates (NSF-REU) Programs. Students have many resources in order to prepare themselves for a career, graduate school and beyond.

Alumni of our department have chosen diverse career paths and are now public school science teachers, university professors, medical professionals (physicians, dentists, nurses, veterinarians), environmental consultants and employees with state and federal agencies such as the Georgia Department of Natural Resources and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
