Student studying


Welcome to the Biology Department at Monroe Community College. My colleagues and I hope you will find many useful links to courses, faculty, and special programs. The faculty have a variety of specialty training and provide a wide range of courses. As well as serving liberal arts and biology majors, the department offers basic science courses for students going into professional programs such as Nursing, Dental Hygiene, Radiologic Technology, Biotechnology, and Physical Education.

Our goal in the Biology Department is to support student learning and provide excellent teaching. We introduce state-of-the-art technology into laboratories and classrooms. Our Natural Science Learning Center (NSEC) provides a place for students to study and use models, charts, and microscopes in a supportive learning environment. We maintain a diverse collection of plants in our greenhouse which are used in several of our courses. The department offers a Biology Scholarship each spring semester, and we encourage all Liberal Arts Biology and Biotechnology majors to apply.
