Current Undergraduate Students


Biology is the scientific study of living systems and all their complexities, and there has probably never been a more exciting time to be a biologist. There are dramatic advances in technology and we are gaining deeper undrstanding of of living organisms, their populations, how they are evolving, and how they are responding to environmental change.

The Department of Biology at the University of Mississippi is a comprehensive life science department with faculty working in many areas of biology. We are a collaborative department that trains students to think broadly, to use interdisciplinary approaches, and to develop innovative insights into fundamental biological processes.
