Bachelors in Bioinformatics in North America 2017. Anthropology is offered as a minor or as a concentration in the Liberal Studies major. Anthropology is most simply defined as the study of humans, in all of our wondrous similarities and differences. It is a field that explores the important question of what makes us human by studying our unique biology and our diverse societies and cultures. Anthropology helps students to understand and value human diversity, to develop an appreciation for their local context, as well as a global awareness, and to embrace an interdisciplinary perspective by drawing on both the natural and social sciences and the humanities.

The biology program prepares students for traditional fields of study as well as emerging fields, such as biophysics, bioinformatics, and molecular genetics. Transylvania students have a variety of opportunities to conduct research, both independently and with professors. Research projects may receive funding from the university or from outside organizations, such as the National Institutes of Health. Current faculty research interests include evolution and behavioral ecology of cannibalism, physiological and other correlates of avian personality, and ecology of non-native plant invasions. See the results for yourself—the majority of our students go on to medical, dental, or pharmacy school or are doing research in graduate programs at leading research institutions across the country. Compare the difference In our small lab sessions, you’ll be encouraged to sharpen your investigative skills by undertaking independent research. You’ll gain firsthand knowledge of subjects through field trips to destinations such as Kentucky’s Red River Gorge and Daniel Boone National Forest. May term travel courses have enabled students to study invertebrates in Florida, tropical ecology in Belize and Hawaii, native plants and animals in the forests of eastern Kentucky, and public health issues in the Philippines. The science of biology plays a central role in important issues like global climate change, stem cell research, and ecological restoration, as well as global health issues such as avian influenza, tuberculosis, and HIV/AIDS. Transylvania’s biology graduates actively engage these issues, both as researchers in the laboratory and as medical personnel on the front lines.
