The mission of the Biology Department of Westfield State University is to foster in all students an understanding of and curiosity about the living world and biological processes, an appreciation of how scientific knowledge is acquired, and the ability to apply their knowledge and skills to generate and address new questions.

As Biology Majors, students will develop an understanding of the diversity, classification, form, function, and behavior of living organisms. Students will also learn to design experiments and collect and analyze data while working closely with dedicated faculty in coursework and optional independent research projects. The Biology Major prepares students for careers or advanced study in a variety of biological and environmental fields, teaching, and professional fields such as medicine.
