The Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee is the principal life sciences department at one of North America’s premier urban research universities. We support internationally recognized research in diverse areas of biology from molecular and cell biology and microbiology to ecology and conservation biology. Our commitment to research excellence is the foundation of the Department's high-quality educational programs at the bachelor's, master's, and doctoral levels. We also provide scientific expertise that benefits the Southeastern Wisconsin community in several ways, including health and life sciences, business, industry, education, and the public.
Undergraduate students are offered a broad-based training in biological principles through practical field and laboratory experiences that provide opportunities to investigate biological phenomena and to develop critical thinking skills necessary to develop scientific hypotheses and to evaluate scientific data.
Graduate level training involves the proposal of scientific questions as research hypotheses with independent research, in the context of instruction in the most current research methodologies, to test them.
