Our Mission

The Department of Biological Sciences at Purdue University Calumet recognizes the breadth and depth of modern biology and is committed to excellence in teaching, research and service. We embrace a broad range of concentrations, including biotechnology, cell/physiology, ecology, microbiology, and pre-professional studies. By providing instruction, laboratory experience, and research opportunities that empower students to analyze problems and synthesize solutions, we prepare them for careers in academia, industry, or for further graduate or professional studies. Our students develop the skills to become successful, well-informed, and enthusiastic contributors to our ever-changing environment.
