Welcome to microbiology!

Students in our two undergraduate majors have wide-ranging interests throughout the biological sciences. Activities outside of class offer professional development, leadership opportunities and social interaction. We are proud of our many student clubs, as well as our students who participate in contests or outreach and engagement.
