Undergraduate Degree Programs
NMU's Department of Biology offers its students an array of hands-on learning opportunities in each of its undergraduate programs. Students engage in biology research through classwork and laboratories, research projects, and independent experiences with faculty mentors.
NMU Biology offers the following bachelor's degree programs:
Two Forensic Biologist Term Positions
The Department of Biology at Northern Michigan University is seeking applications for two term Assistant Professor positions to begin August, 2024. These 3-year term faculty positions require a Ph.D. in forensic biology (ABD considered) or a related field. This is a great opportunity to develop a research program at the Forensic Research Outdoor Station (FROST), which is the outdoor human taphonomy facility here at NMU.

NMU Biology is co-sponsoring another Week of Diversity in STEM in Winter 2024 along with other departments on campus. Click the link below for more info, and check out the Diversity in STEM Art Contest!
Biology courses emphasize fundamental concepts of biology at the molecular, cellular, organismal, population and community levels. Our many laboratory and field courses provide students with first-hand experience in understanding biological concepts, thus furthering their understanding of life.
The Biology Department is active in a variety of biological research programs led by our faculty. In many cases, both undergraduate and graduate students participate in this work. Students also get access to research opportunities through the numerous student organizations affiliated with the biology department.
