Earning acceptance into the graduate school of your choice feels good. Attending that graduate school free of charge, while also receiving a stipend, may seem too good to be true. It is true, though, and we have the graduates to prove it. In just the past few years, we've put students into funded Ph.D. programs at prestigious schools like the University of Wisconsin, Michigan Tech University, Rutgers and North Carolina. "I'm really pleased that our graduates with a passion for biology have had incredible success being accepted by some pretty high-powered programs," says Paul Pickhardt, Lakeland's natural sciences division chair. "If you pursue a masters or Ph.D. in biology, and you're applying to good programs, they will pay you to go to school." We can help you get there Whether your goal is to attend graduate school or land a job with your biology bachelor's degree, we will put you in position to succeed. We cover all the academic bases, guiding you through a wide array of classes ranging from genetics to molecular biology to chemistry and physics. Lakeland's signature approach to education involves hands-on teaching and interactive learning. Our biology program is a testament to that, with application-based lab work that breaks the mold. "In our environmental science courses, for example, our students go out in the field and do science as if they were actually professional biologists," says Pickhardt, a 2011 Underkofler Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching award winner. "And across the curriculum, we try to emphasize that our labs aren't cookie-cutter like they are at other places. They're certainly not being taught by a grad student or teaching assistant." Biology at Lakeland From the ponds on our picturesque campus to the jungles of Belize, your biology journey at Lakeland College will provide you with opportunities near and far. Every other May, a group of 10-15 Lakeland students travels to Belize for an interactive tropical biology course that emphasizes investigative research in a tropical rainforest. Students live in a lowland forest for nine days, plus study coral reef ecology on the reefs of Belize for a few days. "If you asked all of the students who have made this trip, I think the response would be unanimous that it's a life-changing experience," says Pickhardt.

Bachelors in Microbiology. Bachelor in Biology Biology students at Waldorf College are trained in the methods of scientific inquiry as they also are grounded in the principles of biology. We accomplish this through traditional classroom work, laboratories and field trips, and through supporting experiences, such as internships, summer assistantships, and research. Why Study Biology? Biology is a story of survival. Biologists study living systems and ask questions about life, such as: What environmental and physiological factors affect the distribution and abundance of organisms on the earth? How do cells change as they age, and how does this affect the whole organism? How can genetics help answer questions about disease, adaptation, behavior, or extinction? How do matter and energy flow through ecosystems, and how is this flow being affected by human activities? To answer these and other questions, the Biology Department prepares students for a variety of professions and careers. All students enrolling in biology will begin working toward a B.A. degree, a program that gives students a strong preparation in biology with supporting courses in mathematics, chemistry, and physics. It also allows students to combine this program with over 20 credits from other academic departments, a flexibility that allows students to pursue a minor in computers, communications, business, or other programs. Such interdisciplinary biology degrees will greatly strengthen a graduate's marketability in the competitive workplace. The Biology Department is very proud of its track record. Many of our alumni now are physicians, nurses, physical therapists, optometrists, dietitians, veterinarians, biologists, park rangers, or farmers. Elective Concentrations Cell Molecular Conservation Biology Anatomy/Physiology Pre-Professional Curriculum To best prepare students for leadership careers in the biological sciences the Department maintains five general goals for its students: to develop the practice of scientific and critical inquiry; to assist students in understanding and applying scientific principles; to develop investigative and quantitative skills; to train students to operate biological equipment accurately and efficiently; to prepare students for a life of leadership and service. To accomplish these goals, the department offers students a strong curriculum and opportunities outside the classroom to develop their biological skills. All courses are thorough and experiential; students use modern laboratory equipment and practice scientific inquiry while learning a breadth and depth of biological information. Faculty members maintain research programs and strongly encourage students to participate in projects. [-]
