 University of North Dakota | Biology Department
The 21 st century will be the age of biology, extending a century-long revolution in the biological sciences, with the future quality of human existence being strongly dependent on future advances in the life sciences.
This, in turn, has driven accelerating demands for basic and applied biological knowledge, particularly in cellular-and-molecular-biology with implications for medicine, agriculture, genetic engineering, and forensic science; and in evolution-and-ecology with implications for the conservation of natural resources and restoration of ecosystems severely disturbed by human activities.
Demand for programs in biology will accelerate because of a vital need for graduates with focus and training in the biological sciences, particularly in the core areas related to medicine, cellular and molecular biology, and evolution and ecology.
