Medical laboratory science students observing samples under the microscope

In Search of Solutions


Biological Sciences brings together students and faculty in search of solutions to biological problems—from medicine to freshwater ecosystem health. Use molecular tools to grow, modify, and characterize plants, animals, and microorganisms in the lab. Present results in classrooms, research symposia, and scientific journals. Michigan Tech students work and play in all seasons of our outdoor playground, the Keweenaw Peninsula.

Ready for Medical School

"I liked that my undergrad degree was so diverse. In addition to biology classes, I also took lots of courses in chemistry, physics, writing, and even computer science, and it was really fun getting to explore all these different disciplines and challenge myself in new ways all the time. My major definitely kept me on my toes, which I know will help me during medical school." Read Elise's Advice to Pre-Med Students.
