The primary mission of the biology department is to provide academic training in biology and pre-professional areas including medicine, dentistry, optometry, physical and occupational therapy and veterinary science. The biology department also assists in providing students the opportunity to earn a bachelor's degree in biology on the Casper College campus via UW/CC.
Located in the Loftin Life Science Building, the biology department has state-of-the-art teaching facilities and labs that are some of the best equipped in the region. The exceptional faculty have diverse backgrounds and they are able to offer courses in a wide variety of biological areas. The faculty foster an interest in, and appreciation for, scientific inquiry.
The biology department has excellent facilities allowing educators to provide students with a rich experience in small classes with undivided attention. The biology department offers degree programs in Biology and an array of pre-professional areas, as well as opportunities for research oriented exploration. Fittingly for a college in a state where natural ecosystems are intact and spectacular, many of the classes emphasize field biology. Biology courses are offered in both the traditional classroom setting and the Moodle online format.
