Primary Function of Organizational Unit

Modern Biology increasingly impacts the non-scientific world, facilitating
solutions to technological, environmental, ethical, philosophical and political
issues that are important to society. The Department of Biology and Marine
Biology at UNCW strives to train the next generation of scientists and
educators, and prepare all students to make sound judgments based on a
solid foundation of biological principles. The department provides an
environment in which excellent teaching coupled with diverse research
opportunities encourage our faculty to become leaders in their discipline.
Our teaching emphasizes current theories of biological science, knowledge
of basic investigative skills, and methods of critical inquiry. Our research
programs, in both applied and basic aspects of discovery, value
investigations of biological phenomena that impact the quality of life in our
region and beyond. We lend our professional expertise to all endeavors that
work for the improvement of the human condition and our environment. We
believe the importance of modern biological principles must transcend the
university classroom and enable our students to contribute as global citizens.
