“Choosing to be a Biology major at OBU means choosing to become part of a successful tradition of hard-working, intelligent students at a great university.” Pete Brunson, ’14
On any given day in Jones Science Center, you’ll find our faculty and students preparing bacterial cultures, identifying trees, preparing presentations, working in study groups or involved in lab dissections. Our mission is to provide our students with a broad background in biology. Coupled with the opportunity for research and the background you’ll get from the Ouachita CORE curriculum, you will be equipped for entering almost any health related field, for teaching, or for occupations in government or industry. Please take a look around our site and if you have any questions, feel free to contact us!
The Biology Department is proud to have graduated thirty-nine students in May 2012. These are some of our recent graduates.
In Fall 2012, twenty-eight freshmen are involved in authentic, hands-on research on bacteriophages through the HHMI PHAGES program.
