Instructional Program (CIP)

Zoology/Animal Biology. 260701


The program in Zoology provides a vigorous background in the fundamental aspects of animal
biology while allowing flexibility in planning the direction of specialization for student majors.
Students plan their program in consultation with a faculty advisor and can select courses from
several departments within the college (School of Biology & Ecology, Department of Biochemistry,
Microbiology & Molecular Biology, Department of Plant, Soil, and Environmental Sciences,
Department of Wildlife Ecology, School of Marine Sciences). The emphasis of student programs
can include preparation for the health professions and range from the molecular and cellular
levels through development and physiology to the evolutionary and ecological levels.
UMaine offers students many opportunities to participate in research in faculty laboratories.
These include student independent research for course credit, research for a capstone or an
honors thesis, and paid work. In addition, students can hold a variety of internships off campus.
The UMaine Career Center provides many resources to help students find such internships
