Welcome to the Spring Hill College Department of Biology
We’re glad that you decided to visit our web page! The biology program at Spring Hill provides ideal preparation for successful careers and entrance into top graduate programs and medical schools. The department provides three concentrations: cellular and molecular biology, organismal and marine biology, and pre-health science (for those preparing for a career in medicine or a field of allied health). You will find our graduates working as physicians, dentists, researchers, teachers, marine scientists, pharmacists, and physical therapists.
As a biology major you will undertake a thorough study of the foundations of biology and advanced courses that are chosen in accordance with your goals and interests. Along the way you will be guided and instructed by faculty with a strong commitment to teaching. All of our faculty teach and supervise the laboratories associated with their courses. We are genuinely concerned for you as a student and as an individual and we will challenge you to excel both academically and personally.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions, and be sure to stop by our offices if you take a tour of the campus. We hope to see you in the near future!
