Biology at MSU Denver

We can't teach you the meaning of life, but we can teach you about life in all of its variety

From red blood cells to blue whales, irises to giant sequoias, and DNA to the creatures of the deep sea, our beautiful planet is full of life. One might think with the hundreds of thousands of years of human existence, our species would know everything there is to know about all living things on Earth. But with new advances in technology that have caused a vast expansion of our understanding of biology, we’re just starting to scratch the surface of the previously unknown.   

The Department of Biology at MSU Denver teaches courses that cover the entire spectrum of biological sciences. Specializing in Genetics, Microbiology, Human Anatomy & Physiology, Botany, Zoology or Ecology provides you with the knowledge to succeed in areas such as medicine, wildlife management, education, neuroscience, environmental science and so much more. Learn more about the MSU Denver Biology Department, or get a look inside via our Newsletters.
