Biology Department

Welcome

Contemporary biology is built on understanding life at the molecular, cellular, organismal, population and community levels. The Tufts Department of Biology is dedicated to providing a unified and comprehensive view of biological processes for our students.

The distribution requirements for undergraduate biology majors include laboratory, lecture, and seminar courses across diverse levels of biological organization. Students learn scientific problem-solving methods and the essential skills of reading and evaluating original research literature, and of communicating their research results.

Tufts Biology department also provides numerous opportunities for undergraduates to actively participate in cutting-edge biological research in molecular biology, cell biology, genetics, physiology, plant ecology, animal behavior, and conservation biology.

The biology department has moved!
All faculty that were in the Dana/Barnum building on the main quad are now located on the 3rd floor of Robinson Hall in the new Science and Engineering Complex (SEC). The biology department office is located in room 369 on the 3rd floor and all teaching labs are located on the ground floor. Please note that all faculty and labs in 200 Boston Ave. will remain at this location. We look forward to seeing you soon in our new home.
