University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point​

The UW-Stevens Point Department of Biology is a center of excellence in education and undergraduate research. Our 25 faculty teach more than 500 biology majors and also serve the College of Natural Resources and College of Professional Studies majors. Student-professor interaction is a high priority at UW-Stevens Point. Most of our classes and labs are taught by a Ph.D. instructor with expertise in the field, and we offer many opportunities for undergraduate research. UW-Stevens Point biology students excel in organismal biology and are encouraged to participate in field courses.
