Our degree program maximizes resources within every area of the sciences. This means our students go where their career plans and academic ambition take them, no matter which area of biological sciences appeals to them the most – whether teaching, med school, or lab or field research.
Center for Ecology
From SIU, you can visit a dozen ecological environments in one day. Biology students interested in ecology can work with ecologists who are also microbiologists, plant biologists, or zoologists, as well as ecologists in other colleges and academic departments.
Center for Service-Learning and Volunteerism
Service learning offers our students opportunities to engage in meaningful volunteer work that enhances their resumes and puts to practical use what they learn in the classroom. From environmental education to avenues for pre-health and biomedical professionals, helping others can help you find your own path to the future.
