Biological sciences – a diversity of opportunities
A degree in biological sciences can lead you down a number of successful career paths, including health, teaching, research, pharmacy and environmental science – just to name a few.
- Bachelor of Science
- Bachelor of Arts
- Master of Science in Applied and Environmental Biology
Our program provides ample opportunities for undergraduates to get involved in research – from using fruit flies to determine why individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease develop sleep deprivation, to discovering hydrogen-producing bacterium that might one day be used as an alternative fuel source.
If you would like to read more about the supportive academic community that we try to cultivate, please take a look at our chair's welcome, our recent annual reports, or some of our departmental newsletters. Our department also provides a Survival Guide that contains a variety of useful information for students majoring in Biological Sciences.

Daniel Miller, alumnus
Cell (phone) biologist
Armed with a smartphone and a few dollars’ worth of trinkets and hardware store supplies, Daniel Miller is helping Missouri S&T students gain a new perspective on the world of cellular biology.
Last spring, while Miller was wrapping up his graduate studies in applied and environmental biology, he found a website that showed how to build a digital microscope with inexpensive supplies, a smartphone and a power drill. “I thought I’d give it a try,” says the St. Louis native. [Read more]
