If you have an interest in living organisms, Northern’s Biology Department has a major for you. What interests you most: the interactions of plants and animals in ecosystems, understanding how organisms work at the systems or cellular level, or understanding the development or evolution of living things? Our programs will give you the opportunity to develop a broad-based biological foundation while concentrating on an area of specialization.
At NMU, you won’t just read about research in your desired field, you’ll be a researcher. For instance, in 2008-09 Kirstin Meyer, a freshman, did research with her professor, identifying a new species of African crab, as well as co-authoring a published article about the discovery. NMU biology students are also doing award-winning collaborative brain tumor research with neurologists from Marquette General Hospital.
The choices for biology-related careers are abundant: biochemist, bio-engineer, botanist, conservation officer, environmental analyst, educator, field ecologist, forester,geneticist, hydrologist, lab researcher, microbiologist, natural resources manager, park naturalist, museum curator, zoologist, fisheries or wildlife biologist, and more. Many of our graduates also go on to get chiropractic, dental, medical or veterinary degrees.
