The Biology program is committed to the laboratory approach to science. Students completing the Biology core will have been exposed to all major areas of Biology and are allowed the freedom to concentrate on an area of special interest within the major. There are also sufficient hours of free electives so that a Biology major could obtain secondary teaching certification simultaneously. The faculty is housed in the Hayes Biology building and in the Science Auditorium. The Hayes Biology Building also houses the J. Steadman Collection. Field based study is available at the Dujay Sanctuary in the Big Thicket and at Center for Coastal and Marine Studies (CCMS), located on Pleasure Island near Port Arthur.
The faculty feel that one of its strengths lie in the fact that many of its courses are still taught on the organismal level. Many larger institutions place emphasis on the molecular level and students do not get a feel for the whole organism or taxonomy. Both the molecular and organismal levels are available at Lamar.
The areas of expertise and research interests of the faculty include Behavior, Botany, Cytogenetics, Ecology, Entomology, Epidemiology, Herpetology, Ichthyology, Invertebrate Zoology, Limnology, Mammalogy, Marine Biology, Microbiology, Parasitology, Toxicology, and Physiology.
