Why Study Biology at UST?

Our faculty and staff are dedicated to providing students with a creative, engaging, and flexible program of study that stimulates their intellectual curiosity, prepares them for rewarding careers in a wide range of professions, and encourages them to employ their scientific knowledge in ways that serve the common good of humanity and that respect the diversity of life on our planet. We are large enough to offer variety and quality in both the courses we teach and the research opportunities we provide, but we are small enough to give our students the individual attention they deserve throughout their entire undergraduate career.

We hope you will explore our web site and learn more about what we have to offer. Please do not hesitate to contact me (651.962.5206) if you would like more information about us. If you would like to see our facilities or to meet with me personally, our Admissions office would be glad to arrange a visit.
