The UCF Department of Biology is comprised of a balanced blend of research scientists and classroom lecturers who are committed to maintaining a diverse undergraduate curriculum, creating a dynamic graduate program, and engaging in contemporary research. We have successfully trained thousands of undergraduate students for a range of biology careers including scientists and health care professionals. Furthermore, our broad-based curriculum provides excellent preparation for post-graduate education (e.g. medical, dental, veterinary and graduate school).

Research within the department stretches across a range of biology disciplines, from sub-organismal physiology to ecosystem dynamics. Our competitive MS and PhD programs provide contemporary training in a diverse academic environment. Our students have consistently been employed by many state and federal agencies, colleges and universities, as well as environmental consulting firms and NGOs.
