Learning About Life

The School of Natural Science and Mathematics offers courses in Biology for students pursuing degrees in Biology, Biotechnology, Biochemistry, Human Life Sciences, Informatics, or instruction for pre-professional programs in Medicine, Engineering, Dentistry, Optometry, Chemistry, and Pharmacy. Interested students can also take courses in preparation for other degrees in science or mathematics and related employment in areas such as natural resources management, public health, quality control, environmental assessment, urban planning, and municipal water treatment.

Courses are offered in introductory, field, molecular, cellular and human biology, ecology, genetics, evolution, and immunology, as well as in Microbiology, Physiology, Plant Science, Zoology, and Environmental Studies.

There are Biology research laboratories in Whitewater Hall, in the School of Natural Science and Mathematics at Indiana University East.

Students are encouraged to apply their knowledge of Biology in areas outside the classroom. Opportunities also exist to explore topics beyond the normal Biology curriculum through directed independent study.

Biology courses offered at Indiana University East support baccalaureate (4 year) degrees in Biology (BS) and in Natural Science and Mathematics (BA), with concentration in Biology, Mathematics or Interdisciplinary Studies.
