Welcome to the Biological Sciences department. I would like to invite you to learn more about our exciting and comprehensive Biology program by browsing our web site. Weather you are a Biology major, interested in learning technical laboratory skills, or a non-major, we have what you need to succeed.  

Starting with our state-of-the-art new laboratory classrooms in the Aliso lab building, to the new Canyon Country campus, to our ever expanding curriculum, you can find it all here. Biology is a dynamic and exciting field and students in our department have access to professors with a broad range of expertise, from the molecular scale to the ecosystem. Faculty in the biology department takes pride in providing excellent opportunities for learning inside the classroom and out to help you achieve your academic and professional goals.
We are constantly improving our curricula with innovative new courses, such as Biology of Cancer, Human Prosection in our new cold room with an extraordinary audiovisual system, major preparation courses, as well as the prerequisites for any of the Allied Health field careers. Our study-abroad program that started in 2004 has already expanded to a 3-week stay at Biological Research Stations in the Galapagos Islands and the Ecuadorian Amazon with opportunities to do field and research work in the near future. An Environmental Sciences curriculum with field experience in the San Bernardino Mountains started in fall 2008, and, we are participants in the new interdisciplinary Environmental Studies/Sciences Program (for more information on these, please contact Mary Bates at
As you can see, our department is dedicated to provide the student with the best Biology education in an environment that will stimulate enquiring minds and foster the joy of scientific discovery.
If you have any other questions, or need help please contact me via e-mail or phone.
Thanks again for visiting!
