What is Biology?

Illinois offers two biology majors: Integrative Biology and Molecular and Cellular Biology. If you’re interested in either, you’ll apply into our Biology program. 

Biology at Illinois offers a prestigious, customizable education. You'll explore the world of biology your freshman year before deciding on a focus in one of the two majors. You'll study molecular and cellular functions. You'll also learn about metabolic, genetic, and physiological processes common to life, from molecules to global cycles. The knowledge you gain will prepare you for a competitive job market, graduate school, or health-related professional school.
