Live and study among the trees
SFA offers the type of field experience – thousands of acres of forest near campus – that you simply cannot find among the concrete jungles surrounding urban universities.
The faculty in the Department of Biology believe that our students should get their hands dirty, grow their minds in the field and engage their curiosity in our high-tech labs. That means even undergraduate students are working right alongside their professors, helping them address cutting-edge questions and further their understanding of the biological world.
