Life Science



“The Department of Biological Sciences will be a recognized regional, national, and international leader in research, and in undergraduate and graduate education in life sciences.”



“ The role of biological science is the discovery and integration of basic knowledge from multiple fields of study as they apply to living systems.


Advances in basic and applied knowledge provide a nexus from which theory, technology, and policy arise.


The Department of Biological Sciences is the hub of life science initiatives at Michigan Tech and beyond—advancing knowledge and developing solutions.


All students need a diverse educational experience through which they can develop an appreciation of the connectedness of life and the environment across all scales of organization—from molecules to ecosystems.


We value the direct and the intangible benefits that emerge from a diverse complement of research and teaching faculty."
