Students who study biology must examine every living organism, from a single cell to the largest ecosystem – or all creatures great and small, as the poem goes. For those particularly interested in the processes and behavior of animals, Gannon’s zoology courses are surefire favorites.

Taught by Dr. Edward Phillips and Dr. Steve Ropski, zoology classes explore the physiological diversity of animals, with an emphasis on either vertebrates or invertebrates. They build on the knowledge acquired in introductory classes like Molecular and Cellular Biology and Animal Form and Function.

Even though zoology falls within the biology program, most health science majors dabble in it.
