Augustana's Summer Research Program places
undergraduates in the field at laboratories
and study tanks throughout the U.S.
Augustana students were invited to present their
original research at the symposium
that was held on campus April 21.
Biology is a broad area of science that includes the study of every aspect of living systems and their interrelationships. One of its purposes is to help people to understand themselves and their role in the biosphere.
Students majoring in biology are prepared for a wide variety of professional, cultural and vocational opportunities, including graduate study, the medically allied professions and teaching. Present-day biology makes liberal use of chemistry, mathematics and physics as tools, so our biology students acquire a sound background in these basic fields as well.
