Ripon College offers a minor in environmental biology. The study of biology at the College is dedicated to analyzing problems, reaching creative solutions, and communicating those discoveries. From your introductory course, you will be developing problem-solving skills by designing your own laboratory exercises and performing data analysis. In advanced courses, you will develop a broad base of biological knowledge and continue to learn critical laboratory skills. Because biologists must be able to communicate their findings to others, all of your courses will emphasize written and oral communication skills. Graudates go on to pursue a variety of professions in the biological sciences, academia, medicine, and beyond.
