Denison's Department of Biology gives students a broad exposure to and understanding of the natural world, and provides a solid preparation for graduate and professional schools. Our graduates pursue successful careers in education, research, medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, pharmaceutical and nutritional fields, forest and park services and conservation organizations.
At the beginning of the 2003-04 academic year, the department moved into the brand new, state-of-the-art Samson Talbot Hall of Biological Science. The six-floor, 60,000-square-foot building was designed by the award-winning firm of Graham Gund Architects to include flexible teaching labs for short- and long-term experiments and classrooms that facilitate small, interactive classes.
Denison's 350-acre Biological Reserve and Polly Anderson Field Station are within walking distance of campus and are used for labs, field trips and research.
